    About me

    I have had a passion for the Performing Arts industry from a young age. Whilst in education, I helped and performed in many productions, such as A Midsummer Nights Dream, Hiawatha and Julius Caesar.

    I studied Stage Management and Technical Theatre at Academy of Live and Recorded Arts (ALRA) in Wandsworth, London. I have been working in the industry since 2010, and professionally since 2011.

    I enjoy all types of theatre and performance

    I also work as a Zombie Actor for the UK based street chase game 2.8 Hours Later.
