I have recent experience in television.
Under the directorship of Jared Anderson I was given two roles this May (2019) as an extra in the tv docudrama 'I am Patrick' due to be released in the U.S. in 2020.
Previously was cast in an episode of 'Evidence of Evil' for CBS on the reconstruction of a cold case murder. Filmed in March 2019 by Peninsula Television, Dublin.

I am also interested at voice-over acting. I have always loved reading aloud to my kids and feel that, with my musical background, voice-overs would be a suitable way of acting for me.
