    About me

    I am an Actor, Writer and Director based in Manchester with access to London and the North West. Recently in training with the playwright and dramatist Jim Cartwright. I have studied several performance methods both at university and in my own studies. I have a love of Meisner, Brook and Stanislavsky as well as a love of the craft itself.

    During my 5 years living in Reading I have Directed 3 performances as well as appearing in 4 stage productions and 5 short film projects. I am passionate about performance and strive to bring a level of professionalism and dedication to every role. This means prompt learning of Line and an enthusiasm to deliver a sincere and believable character performance.

    My interests

    Acting is a key interest without which I would not be here. I’m a very creative person and love to write. I am currently writing a novel titled ‘KINGLING’ but I have also written a couple of plays and a children’s book called ‘The Railway Mice’. I also enjoy filming and have made a couple of short pieces, I find that editing is far less stressful and more therapeutic however. I’d say ‘music’ but if anyone didn’t like music I’d question their sanity.
