I perform for several companies in East Sussex, and experianced in Drama, Musical, Comedy and Panto productions. I've a good ear for accents and enjoy lead and supporting roles equally on their own merits. I'm always looking to take my acting to the next level and I'm now represented by Barry at Casting Central for TV and Background artist work. I am a quick study, taking the opportunity to learn from those around me, be they fellow actors, directors or crew. My recent leads include 'George Milton' in 'Of Mice and Men', 'Amonasro' in 'Aida', 'Hound' in 'The Real Inspector Hound' and 'Bert Bentley' in 'Red Peppers' and 'The Maniac' in 'Accidental Death of an Anarchist' at The Stables Theatre, Hastings and The De La Warr Theatre, Bexhill. The titular role in 'Macbeth' for Bowler Crab Productions, in June and 'Nathan Detroit' in 'Guys & Dolls', at the White Rock Theatre, Hastings.
