    About me

    I started as a performance poet back in 1996 with Paul Stones, the high point of which was supporting Attila the Stockbroker. I then joined Brighton’s long running Upstairs Theatre Company and the politically savvy, anarchic Thespionage – frequently harassed by the police for their ‘close to the bone’ subject matter.

    Graduating from NW5 Theatre School, I joined Outside Edge – a theatre company devoted to drugs based issues and working with excellent scripts by the likes of writer Tony Craze of the Royal Court.

    After a further 2 years studying the Meisner Technique with Scott Williams and attending Rada's European ACT course, I have gone on to perform in many theatre tours, both classical and modern, several films, many educational projects and several recent TV projects for Terrestrial TV.

    I am one of the leading storytellers in the Heritage industry performing at castles and houses across the UK with English Heritage, National Trust, Warwick Castle, Royal Armouries, the Royal Palaces, and other sites and museums as my clients and have now started my own events company ‘HamsterJAM Productions Ltd’.

    I am also one of the most experienced Medical Roleplayers for the Kent, Sussex and Surrey Deanery, playing doctors, patients, psychiatrists, parents and technicians.

    Finally, for the past 10 years I have been running Brighton Meisner - an acting class currently held at Emporium Theatre in Brighton.
