About me

'...the character George, a Dickensian unfavourable confused with books he had read from the past and the present, performed the rhythmic script with alarming realism. He could have easily been someone you came across during an intoxicated trip on a night bus, became best friends with for the duration of your journey and then never had any contact with again..' - 'Jagged Edge' by Fabia Jones Russell

My Portfolio.
https://vimeo.com/user8650686/videos

I am a professional actor recently back from a working holiday in Los Angeles, California. I have gained valuable experience and industry knowledge while in and around Holllywood over a three month period. Through innovative networking I gained an IMDB credit for the feature 'Phantom Halo', Directed by Antonia Bogdanovich that was shot at a casino in Los Angeles.

Over the past two years I have built my acting experience working within both film and commercial work. I was a contributing actor to the 'Becks - Green Box' campaign where I played the lead male. Since then I've been improving on my talent, taking on extra roles in ' The Magnificent Eleven' and Michael Winterbottom's 'The Look of Love'. Needless to say this was, as stated 'extra work'. I want to emphasise both my enthusiasm and talent at being both adaptable and competent at working on budgeted productions as well as smaller financed productions.

I can contribute to any production and character with the depth and style of Kurosawa and the social intelligence of Leigh, as well as the wild unashamed creativity of Lynch. This coupled with my theatrical desire and knowledge of Brecht's distancing techniques and Stanislavski's social realism with his deliverance through human inference.

I can constantly improve my skillset through enveloping characters of a deeper and darker substance. Through the reading of plays such as Jean-Paul Sartre's No Exit, Arthur MilIer's Crucible and Albert Camus' The Misunderstanding, I feel I can embody any given character and narrative.

Additional Information

I have been a amateur boxer for 3 years in my late teens and still have the physic to show for it.

I have been a keen badminton and tennis player for over ten years.

Additional Skills

I am a trained gardener, with three years experience on a freelance basis for the elderly and disabled in Muswell Hill, Crouch End and Highgate. The work ranges from basic maintenance to laying fresh lawns to minor tree surgery.

I am a trained carpenter with over two years hands on experience of working in a Joinery. The work was specialist and consisted of constructing sash windows from the point of design to the sale of product.

I am a highly competent cook and have experience of working in an environment with numerous people to cater for many people, to a high standard.
