    Classical Training: Royal Central School of Speech and drama (2012) 1st Class Hons

    I am experienced within a collaborative and devised style of working having been a part of several award winning companies dedicated to physical theatre productions.

    I work regularly for a large gaming company as a motion capture performer for next gen console games.

    I am a proficient puppeteer, regularly performing for the Flying Butresses.

    I have a passion for Classical theatre, especially Shakespeare, and have recently performed leading roles within Worcester Reps and The Festival Players Shakespeare seasons.
