Professional Actor and Singer

I trained as an actor at East 15 Drama School graduating in 2009. Since then I have been working full time as an actor/singer.

I currently work as a professional singer performing rock, pop, jazz and classical styles, providing my own PA system. I have performed in venues across the country including the Roundhouse in Camden, Britannia International Hotel in Canary Wharf, and the Grand Burston Hotel in Kent.

I have also performed in TV idents, commercials, feature films as an extra, musical theatre, and fringe theatre performances. Work includes: 118  Direct Enquiries Commercial Ident (ITV and Channel 4), Turnout (feature film 2011), Anything But An Astronaut (Surgeon’s Hall, Edinburgh Fringe).

My skills:

I am a trained singer and have studied with distinguished tutors including Stephen Douse, Colin Sell and Richard Halton.

I trained in acting at East 15 Drama School and regularly attend workshops at The Actors Centre. I have studied improvisation and have taken part in forum theatre and playback performances.

I am a confident physical theatre performer and have taken part in workshops with ‘Frantic Assembly’ and ‘Mime the Gap’.

I have produced various theatre productions including an interactive/immersive performance in 2013 at the Key Theatre, Peterborough. In preparation for this performance, I volunteered with immersive theatre company, ‘You Me Bum Bum Train’.

I have experience working on site-specific projects, including 1000 revolutions by the ground-breaking Periplum theatre company.

I am a strong dancer and I have choreographed many productions in various styles including Jazz, Street, Zumba, Contemporary and Cheerleading.

I am a confident horse rider able to gallop and jump small fences. I am comfortable working with all animals including exotics and reptiles.

For many years I have enjoyed painting and drawing and would be confident when demonstrating this skill for a particular role.

I am a member of Equity, extremely reliable and enthusiastic when taking on any role.
