    About me

    I have a Professional Diploma in Stage and Screen Performance. Currently based in Glasgow (with bases in Yorkshire and London too), I am willing to travel and have the experience to be considered for a wide variety of different roles. I have performed with highly respected companies such as The National Theatre of Scotland, Scottish Opera, Scottish Opera Connect Chorus, Youth Music Theatre UK, West End Stage, Scottish Youth Theatre and the BBC. I performed in the Commonwealth Games Cultural Programme in 2014 and also in two productions which ran throughout the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2016.

    I am an actor first and foremost with a passion for film, TV and theatre. I do also enjoy opera, musical theatre and actor musicianship. I have a wide range of experience in all these genres. I am a confident presenter on TV, radio and at live events.

    I have had the good fortune to have made a lot of friends in each of the companies I have worked with, which includes the production teams, creatives as well as fellow actors. I have a good work ethic and am reliable.
