    About me

    I trained at the David Johnson School of Acting in Manchester. Whilst living in Manchester I had numerous theatre roles working in a variety of venues such as The Contact Theatre, The Lowry and The Royal Exchange. I was also the recipient of GMDF Best Young Actor award for his work as Eddie Lyons in Willy Russells 'Blood Brothers. Since moving to London I have received regular personal tutoring from Jeremy Stockwell, of RADA and the BBC. I have also recently finished the Beginners course exploring the Yat Method at Room One led by James Kemp.
