    About me

    Based in London and a relatively late starter to acting - I quickly discovered an innate passion and talent for storytelling and a love of the collaborative nature of performing with and for others.

    Having spent time on a diverse range of sets, as an extra, I knew I had to train and was fortunate to work with brilliant and encouraging tutors, building my skill set.

    I have a great ear for accents and love finding the physicality, depth and motivations of a character.

    My experiences on film, including a lead role in the short film 'Fling', have encouraged me to seek new opportunities to fully immerse myself in this industry and develop and grow in my ability to bring people and their stories to life.

    Acting experience

    Lead role as Billy, in short film Fling (2012).

    Numerous walk on/feature roles as SA, on The Crown, Emma, Eastenders, Holby City.

    I have taken courses at City Academy in London, over 2 years, on Meisner, Method, Screen Acting to advanced level.
