    About me

    I am a young, hungry, ambitious aspiring actor. I am extremely versatile, quick thinking, hilarious and can speak to anyone about anything! I love to stand out but not to the point where people cannot stand me and I am nearly always open to new things.

    I first acted at the age of 9 with my church play in front of a hundred or so people. I then acted in my school play's"Yesterday's Youth and "Hard Life" at the age of 14 and 15 in the Bromley Churchill Theatre which has a capacity of 785 people.

    I also studied media studies at a GCSE level which for my coursework at the age of 16 I made a short clip of myself acting as a "problem child" at school so I would like to say acting is in my veins.

    However, due to life commitments (working a job, college, not understanding myself) getting in the way of my passion for acting, I stopped acting until up to the age of 23-24 where I enrolled in the Identity school of acting. I was there for a brief 6 months before I left and decided I wanted to try another means of developing myself.

    I now currently have a personal acting coach with whom I do a 1 to 1 session with constantly building and improving my craft. I would call myself an explosive actor, someone who an excellent reactive, actor and on my day there is none better.

    My interests

    I live for new and adventurous experiences. I have a passion for reading, keeping fit by going to the gym, practice Muay Thai, swimming, inline skating, play football upon occasion, and play video games.

    Acting experience

    I have acted in two secondary school stage productions which would mean I am very confident in working in front of crowds and in the spotlight. I have acted as a prisoner, nightclub extra, parent, police officer and many more which leads to me to believe I am very versatile. I have also studied at Idenity school of acting.

    Specific Skills

    I would say I have been blessed with the skills such as having the gift of the gab, being charming, hilarious and ambitious. I am also consistent, honest... maybe a little too honest at times and fiercely independent.

    Interesting Past Experiences

    I would say my most interesting past experience would involve myself and some friends being mistaken for a wrong group of people by some guys who had been robbed and assaulted. What followed next was being chased by a group of 15 guys for at least 20 minutes. It was certainly frightening at the time but now I can look back and laugh. I also love reading weird and fascinating books.
