A professional actor, performer, and voice over artist.
I have worked internationally on a variety of different projects across film, television, radio, animation and theatre. Notable credits include starring in Disney's THE LION KING as Zazu, puppeteering Joey in the National Theatre's smash hit WAR HORSE, guest starring in the BBC's ROBIN HOOD, and voicing one of the lead characters, Shelby, in the popular Disney animation series BOYSTER.
I trained at London's foremost drama school; the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, on the BA (Hons) Acting course, and specialised in collaborative and devised theatre. Prior to my time at Central, I undertook training intensives at Shakespeare's Globe and the Royal Shakespeare Company.
I am an experienced Director and Teacher. I regularly work with students in productions and projects at drama schools including; ArtsEd, East15, and the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama. I have a wealth of one-to-one teaching experience as well as large group sessions.
I have extensive experience of teaching with the National Theatre's education and outreach department; where I have curated workshops and significant training programmes for students across the country. These teaching and training opportunities were designed to support and work alongside the National Theatre's smash hit production; WAR HORSE.
I have curated workshops and taught for other theatre companies including: the Nottingham Playhouse, WestEnd Workshops, ACTability, and the Leicester Haymarket Theatre.
I have worked with recent drama school graduates as a mentor and coach, across a wide range of disciplines offering industry advice, workshops, advice, and support.
I have Public Liability Insurance, and hold a valid CRB Check.
I work with my students to build confidence in their ability; encouraging them to make bold and brave choices. I empower my students and support them with carefully designed guidance and advice.
I always begin with an introductory session, during which both student and tutor get to know each other. This is crucial to discover the needs and abilities of the students, and to ensure I am able to tailor their lessons to achieve the best possible results. I use a variety of different teaching techniques and always ensure that my sessions are interactive, engaging and enjoyable.
