    About me

    I have just arrived back in London having just completed two years of full time study at The William Esper Studio in New York (Meisner-based acting training - recognised by Drama UK and Spotlight) - and now I'm ready to put my new skills into action!

    I've always been creative but it actually took the catalyst of my mother dying to make me finally stop pursuing academic-based achievements which brought me success but no joy (I've got a 1st class Degree in Psychosocial Sciences and a history of straight A's at school!) - and begin to follow what excited but terrified me... a career in acting. It felt like coming home, as my entire childhood was spent writing plays and performing them, singing and dancing, painting, playing clarinet, writing stories, poems, and poetry!

    So for the past 6 years I've set about following my joy! I have trained previously in many courses in London (an Advanced Camera class and a Drama Foundation at City Lit; a year of Meisner classes at The Actors Gateway and Comedy Improv classes with Monkey toast and The Free Association)

    I'm now looking to build up my experience in the working world, and to get together a great showreel, and find an agent who will help me continue to grow!

    I am open to opportunities and hope to hear from you soon
