    Additional Information

    I am a professional screen actor with experience in short films, feature films, music videos and Youtube content.

    My skills include improvisation, comedy and an excellent understanding of how film sets work. I am also a confident presenter for video & audio content.

    About me

    I strive to always give a naturalistic performance. I bring myself to the character as much as I can. I believe pauses, eyes and expressions can say as much as dialogue. Huge inspirations of mine are Shane Meadows, Paddy Considine and George MacKay. I really enjoy workshopping characters and using improvisation where appropriate. I have minimal experience in Theatre and consider myself of a screen actor.

    I host and act in a weekly improv comedy podcast called WTFWYD? This means I am writing, presenting & performing every week.

    I found a love for performance while I was at school. I also developed a passion for filmmaking in my teens. Now I've been a film writer/director for over 10 years, and have won multiple awards for my short films. Increasingly I have been casting myself in my own short films, acting as characters in short instragram stories, and desiring more screen acting work. I have a huge amount of experience as a filmmaker behind camera, and I believe this improves my ability as an actor as I have knowledge & understanding of how film sets run.

    Industry Awards

    Best International Short Film at Toronto Smarthphone Film Festival 2016 for "Single to London" which I wrote, directed and starred in.

    Best Director Short Film at Bootleg Film Festival Toronto 2012 for "Thrown"

    Acting experience

    I have acted in over 20 short films since 2008. I have also played a role in 2 feature films.
