As an actor I have been professional for the past seven years, over which time I have gained significant experience in Film, TV and Theatre. My film and TV credits have included a HAFTA awarding winning short (Winner of Best Picture/ Best Cinematography Awards), a well received Sundance Finalist Short (Nominated for Best Short 2016), three successful mainstream documentaries (Aired on ITV4, Channel 5 and the Discovery Channel), three international feature film, a psychological thriller, an in store training video, a popular online crime series, several live broadcast, countless corporate shoots, a few silent shorts, a large amount of student films, an adaptation of an existing English sitcom, an advert for an Online Degrees company and several comedic shorts. I have also appeared in three music videos; the first being for an independent acoustic artist, the second for a global gospel superstar (whose music video has already reached 300,000 views) and rapper/youtube celebrity KSI's single 'Red Alert'. My radio credits have included a recurring role in the radio sitcom 'Temps Interruptus' and the role of Hades in a retelling of the Greek tale 'Persephone'. However my highest achievement to date has been walking away with the Film Oxfords Best Actor Award 2018.

As a theatre actor I have toured both Nationally and Internationally with plays ranging from Shakespeare, Greek Comedies and Tragedies to Gothic horrors, more contemporary dramas, murder mysteries and new writing. My credits have included 'Rhondda Rebel' (Welsh National Opera), 'Romeo and Juliet' (Arch 555) , 'Twelfth Night' (Rhodes Arts Complex), 'Midsummer Nights Dream' (National Tour), 'Wuthering Heights' (National and International Tour), 'A Christmas Carol' (National Tour) and 'Journeys End' (Rhodes Arts Complex). I have also appeared in the original casts of the newly published plays 'The Silent Scream' (The Pump House) and 'Who Gets the Cat' (Lantern Theatre). 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. I am currently playing the lead in a national tour of 'The Ghost of Chesterton House', a new immersive horror production, which will be visiting all the major cities in the UK.

In addition to this I also have a vast amount of experience working in children's theatre. Over the years I have appeared in six professional pantomimes, playing everything from the traditional ghost gag to the leading man. I have also toured extensively with different TIE productions, appearing in everything from plays on road safety to adaptations of classic literature. In addition to this I have also combined my acting talents with my skills as a magician in the long running immersive children's event 'Brightworths School of Magic'. This experience put me in contact with hundreds of children a day, and gave me the opportunity to further hone my illusion and slight of hand skills, as I found myself performing 8 different magic shows a day. Finally my time in children's theatre has also led me to performing at the prestigious London Olympia and South Bank Centre in the 'Jungly Jadoogar' series.

Between 2017 and 2018 I worked for Marella Cruises as an Entertainment/Actor Host, performing in a variety of shows ranging from children's pop up performances to full length comedy shows. During this time I also worked as a presenter in some of their on board gameshows and trivia's.

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.
