Education

About me

I began my formal training at The BRIT School, studying Musical Theatre for 4 years, after which I graduated with a Triple Distinction Grade BTEC National in Musical Theatre. I then attended the Arts University of Bournemouth where I studied for a Bachelor of Arts degree in Acting for which I was awarded 1st Class Honours. I have since worked overseas and in the UK in both theatre and film. I am currently auditioning and seeking acting work and representation in London and around the UK. I am also writing and working on my own theatre that will be showing in London at end of this year and early next year.

Additional Information

I have good devising and improvisation skills, I have always enjoyed a collaborative approach to my work, especially when working in theatre. I have maintained my Musical Theatre training despite moving into acting. I have a high baritone singing voice and am confident in Pop/Rock and MT styles. I am adept at learning choreography and trained in Jazz and Contemporary.

I have worked both on stage and in front of the camera since I finished training and am always looking to expand my commercial, film and television portfolio. Working in front of the camera presents its own set of challenges and rewards for me. I particularly revel in the opportunity to work through the subtle intricacies within a filmed performance.

I particularly enjoy theatre based acting work, whether it be a naturalistic, absurdist, comedic, dramatic, immersive or physical theatre, as the immediate connection achieved when working with a live audience is what continuously draws me towards this work. Having been involved in a wide variety of productions I am able to use my skills to suit many genres and styles of acting.

Additional Skills

I have worked on several successful charity dance shows and variety shows as both a dancer, singer and choreographer. I have been part of many fundraisers for Children in Need, PAPYRUS, Breast Cancer UK among others and always relish in the opportunity to create my own work, especially when this can involve movement or dance. I was credited as choreographer in one of the final shows whilst I was studying at Arts University Bournemouth and have hosted several fundraising events myself which showcased my choreography.
