I'm a professional actor currently working in theatre, film and television. I trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, and have been teaching alongside my work as an actor since graduating in 2007. As an actor I have worked extensively within the profession, having featured in programmes including HOLBY CITY, THE LIVING AND THE DEAD, and FLEABAG, and in films including THE DEATH OF STALIN, THE CHAMELEON and PRIDE, and I have recently completed a six month UK tour with the National Theatre.
For the last ten years I have taught acting and vocal skills to a wide range of students across a variety of organisations and ages, from teenagers up to retirees. I prepare students for drama school auditions, focusing on classical and contemporary monologues and audition technique. I specialise in RP and phonetics, accents (and accent reduction), and effective use of the voice, alongside modern acting techniques and improvisation. I currently work on a freelance basis for a well known Performing Arts School, delivering classes to 300 students in a wide range of disciplines, and for an organisation providing acting classes for adults. I also work with those looking for help with accent reduction, public speaking and presentation in the workplace, improving positivity, confidence and self esteem.
I'm a firm believer that anyone can improve their acting and dramatic skills swiftly, given the right tools for the job, and I tailor my approach to each student in line with their experience, abilities, requirements and aspirations. I'm passionate about my work, and am friendly, easy going, and empathetic.
Among the techniques and skills I cover:
* characterisation * method * vocal work * script exploration & interpretation * monologues * acting for camera * improvisation * sight reading * audition technique * line learning * RP, phonetics, dialects & accents
My hourly rate is inclusive of preparation work, travel, and email/phone support. Areas I cover include Milton Keynes, Leighton Buzzard, Aylesbury, Tring and more. I'm happy to travel to locations further afield, although an additional travel fee may be required.
