    About me

    I am an Actor, Producer, and Specialist Firearms Performer based in Hertfordshire. I trained with the Year Out Drama Company and following that the Comeback Company, both in Stratford-upon-Avon. While there I benefited from the vocational design of the course, their strong focus on the ensemble, and their ties with the Royal Shakespeare Company. I am also the Producer and Founder of Broken Word Productions, a theatre, and short film production company.
