    About me

    Hailing from a small village in Somerset, I began performing from the age of three with my local amateur dramatics company. I continued to participate in their annual shows for the following 15 years, gaining various awards and nominations, including the David Beach Award under the Fellowship of Drama. Following this, I successfully auditioned for the American Theatre Arts (BA Hons) course at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance in London.

    The course, which investigates from a practical point of view the dramaturgical and analytical study of theatre and the industry, including acting and theatre making, has challenged me to expand my understanding and appreciation of different theatre practices.

    Whilst at Rose Bruford, I have enjoyed the unique opportunity of spending a semester abroad at one of America’s most prestigious conservatoires, The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. During my time there I was taught by distinguished practitioners such as T.V and film, director and producer Ernest Losso and Philadelphia based actress Krista Apple-Hodge.

    From my experiences in America and on the accredited drama school programme, I can bring a unique perspective to my work within the industry.
