Athletic
Long Distance Runner, Strong Swimmer and Regular Gym Goer

I have been a professional actor for the past ten years, over which time I have gained significant experience in Film, TV, Radio and Theatre.

My film and TV credits include award nominated/winning shorts (including Sundance, HAFTA, Lift-Off, Screen Power, New York Film Festival), mainstream documentaries, appearances on mainstream British TV comedies, both British Independent and foreign feature films and many music videos.

As a theatre actor I have toured both Nationally and Internationally with plays ranging from the classics and Shakespeare to more contemporary dramas and new writing. My theatrical work has allowed me to perform in some of the largest and most beautiful venues across the world, from the 600 seat Grand Theatre in Shanghai to the British Museum, the Wales Millennium Centre and London Olympia.

I have also worked extensively in children's theatre. Over the years I have appeared in seven professional pantomimes and have toured extensively with different TIE companies, appearing in everything from plays on road safety to adaptations of classic literature.

My skills as both a magician and improv actor have also led me to securing regular immersive theatre contracts with companies such as 'The London Bridge Experience', 'Brightworths School of Magic', 'Xclusive Touch', 'Boo Productions', 'Moonstone Theatre', 'Big Monty Productions', 'Red Herring Games' and 'Komorabi Games'.

I pride myself on the quality of my work, and always give my full dedication to each and every role I play. I am always willing to master new skills and accents quickly and have been told that I am incredibly easy to work with. References are available on request, and reviews of my work can be found on my profile.

'The Ghost of Chesterton House had us on the edge of our seats for a full 45 minutes or so, and for that the actors and producers should be praised' (Scare Tours UK)

'A beautifully and perfectly delivered story by the actors, who took you right into the story and I was completely lost in what was going on around me' (parksscaresandglitter)

'If you are looking for a one of a kind, 360 degrees, haunt filled production in 2019, The Ghost Of Chesterton House is a must on your list' (Thrill Nation)

9 years of presenting experience. My presenting credits have ranged from the comedic 'How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse' to the serious 'Surviving a Stroke' Documentary. Both of these projects were live broadcasts, which meant that I gained experience working with autocues and developed an ability to improvise my way out of most situations (including one particular instant where the autocue decided to go into reverse). I also had the honour of hosting a 6 hour live broadcast for the Ravensborne film awards ceremony, and shortly after that I undertook a 6 month contract on Discovery Cruise liners (TUI) as a host/presenter where I worked 7 days a week hosting events (including many Game Shows) across the entire ship. I am also a seasoned presenter for Educational company 'SAME ACADEMY', through which I present road safety presentations to students between the ages of 11 and 18.

Since 2020 I have also worked as a presenter for Shoreditch radio; where I present the Tuesday Takeback, Indie Classics Breakfast and Indie Drive Time Shows.
