Education

About me

I pursued my love for acting and theatre at the University of Kent from where I graduated in 2015 with a first class honours degree in Drama and Spanish. Whilst there, I performed with both the Drama and the Musical Theatre Societies at a number of large and small venues playing a variety of characters including Paul in Rent The Musical, George Gibbs in Our Town and Eric Birling in An Inspector Calls which I performed on four nights to sell out audiences at the Marlowe Studio Canterbury.

On graduating from University I returned to my hometown Bath and joined the Bath Operatic and Dramatic Society (BODS) to continue improving as a performer. I went on to join the Bristol Acting Academy course, playing a 'convincing and creditable' Cassius in scenes from Julius Caesar and played Eric in An Inspector Calls.

I will begin a Masters programme at Drama school in September.

Additional Skills

My dance skills include Scottish, Street, Ballroom, Jazz and Contemporary to a high level as well as playing both the acoustic and electric guitar. I am a keen sportsman and enjoy playing football and tennis to a high standard as well as rifle and handgun handling experience.
