    About me

    I am a dedicated, committed and passionate performer and individual whose sole ambition has been to achieve a career within the creative arts from an early age. Whilst studying at Hull College of Performing Arts, completing a Foundation Degree (2008) and BA Honours in acting (graduating in 2009) I discovered just how varied and rich the performing arts scene is in this area.  I originate from East Yorkshire, and I was keen to explore and involve myself in local creative projects. So I joined High Reaction Theatre, a Hull based company, and throughout the subsequent year performed a wide range of challenging and diverse roles at the cities Riverside Theatre. After this I continued to explore the vibrant theatre culture in Yorkshire, working with Hull Truck Theatre and Leeds based Imitating the Dog. Throughout my career so far I have been keen to build strong working relationships with the companies and directors I have been fortunate to work with. I am sincere and genuine in achieving my goal. To date, I have successfully undertaken a wide range of diverse and challenging roles encompassing classical and contemporary characters. My other interests include music, playing the guitar, reading and foreign travel.
