About me

I am a versatile young actor and magician with a passion and drive to perform in Theatre, Film or Voice over work. I have trained extensively at The School of the Arts, University of Northampton and graduated in 2014 with a First Class Hons.
My training includes:
clowning, post modern theatre, site-specific performance, physical theatre, renaissance theatre, devising, character based work, improvisational skills, vocal work, live performance as well as screen acting and technical theatre skills.

Since graduating in July, My theatre company has performed at a few fringe venues and are currently in the process of organising an autumn tour to commence at The Edinburgh Fringe.

Currently I am recording the pilot for a new TV animation called Shudan, as well as recently recording a voiceover for a game teaser trailer for possible production by SONY.
