    About me

    Hi, I am an able-bodied amputee actor and more than able to fit a variety of roles. I have a background in immersive theatre, stage performance, reality tv, interactive performance and supporting artist work.

    Most recently, I performed in a lead role in a community pantomime as Captain Bluebeard, bringing a unique, comedic and vulnerable warmth to a villainous hound of a character.

    I have been taking private tuition for the last year to deepen my understanding and craft and in the hope of applying to pursue a degree in Acting at a number of London drama schools.

    I have worked with Bearded Kitten, Studio Lambert productions and also with the BBC and can supply references on request.

    I am fully flexible, relish new opportunities and challenges and am very easy to work with.
