    About me

    After Leaving college with a Drama QNVQ I only dabbled in performing art doing the odd panto from 03-06 and some murder mystery. Instead all my efforts went into being a licensee before the pub company decided to participate in the recession in 2009.

    In 2011 I took up stand up comedy turning pro in 2015

    in late 2015 I returned to acting choosing to take up training specific for screen.

    in 2016 I appeared in a multi award winning short LGBT film and in 2017 had my 1st paid feature film role as well as appearing in a TV commercial.

    2018 I have another indie Feature film role forthcoming as well as a lot more additional training having been accepted into Manchester School of acting
