    About me

    I am making my return to acting! I trained at Italia Conti, 2002 - 2005, graduated (to a feverish response from several London theatrical agents), and began auditioning, believing that my break was imminent. Alas, I was a naive 21-year old and the cost of living in the capital eventually drove me back up north. After several TIE tours and believing that it was financial stability that I wanted, I chose to retrain as a teacher... It was a terrible mistake. One can not simply switch off the burning desire to perform and entertain. I have recently given up full-time teaching to make my return to the screen and stage. I have recently been writing and performing spoken-word material and filming short indy films for entry into film competitions. I am an incredibly passionate, highly skilled and very professional actor, looking to build up my actor's CV: I hope to be working alongside you soon!
