    About me

    Just done a self tape workshop and a screen acting foundation workshop with Becky Sharp (Becky Sharp Films). Really good fun and learnt so much and gained in confidence.

    Thanks to Sebastian, Hanna, Deen and Eleanora at University of Westminster for letting me play a lecturer in their short film "Socially Blind". Thanks as well to fellow actor Fintan Quinn as the student.

    Before that played MI5 officer interrogating a suspect in an online comedy sketch (written and produced by Mehul Thakariya who also played the unfortunate suspect).Big thanks to Mehul and team. Very funny.

    Played "Dad" in a vt insert for stage play "Ear for Eye". Thanks to director Debbie Tucker Green and team for such an enjoyable experience.

    Played a patient in a medical training video.Thanks to Nidhi Gupta, Ingrid Gaza and all at Busy Doctors Film Productions. Really enjoyable working with a fantastic team.

    Performed in "Phrases To Be Used Upon" at the Platform Theatre, CSM Alive, University of the Arts London......a 30 min "episodic tableau"......how we construct ourselves to make the image others see. Really good fun. A bit "off the wall!!".

    My show-reel finally on Mandy Actors.Big thanks to Josh and team at Show You're Reel for their fantastic help and support

    Recently played the Superintendent in Dario Fo's Accidental Death of an Anarchist at the Claremont Project. Great fun playing high tempo, fast paced absurd comedy.Directed by Russel Bolam.

    I have done the following at City Acting (London) ; beginners acting, intermediate acting, character development,voice & communication, monologues, a sketch comedy workshop and a 1day Meisner workshop.

    Also beginners acting and voice-over at the London Academy of Media, Film and TV and introduction to voice over at City Lit.

    Really enjoying discovering more and more about acting and that it is not pretending to be someone else but finding your own energy and following your own impulses to live in the character. Being real in imagined circumstances ( Meisner)

    I enjoy continuing to learn as an actor and finding some exciting projects.

    I have also studied tap at City Academy (London) up to improvers level 2 and can play acoustic guitar
