About me:
I'm a filmmaker/actor currently based within the Leicestershire area. My experience within the creative and film industry includes acting in Netflix's Bridgeton and other short films. Having studied performance and directing I have experience in also understanding the performative and technical aspects of a production.

Although my industrial experience offers me a good navigation when writing, directing and producing my scripts, I also value the art of acting and performance. I have previously written a short film (Pencilled Loop) which is still in post production and am seeking for an individual able to deliver a complex personality resonating with the role.
