About Me

I have always been interested in TV and Film. From a young age I dreamed of becoming a professional actor. Drama class was always my favourite subject.
I am a very social person. I love people. I work well on my own or as part of a team. In college I studied advanced GNVQ art and design holding key skills in Information technology, mathematics, photography, 3D art and fine art.
I took part in some of the collage drama performances and also helped with set design and construction for the same.
Professionally I am an operating department practitioner, this job is based in an operating theatre and I am a healthcare professional. I admit that this job is a completely different career to acting, however it pays the bills. It has also given me great experience into the healthcare environment and aids my ability to play roles based within a healthcare setting.
I am looking at furthering my acting career.
I love my family and friends and I spend time with them in my free time. I love science fiction and emotional dramas, action films, and stunts.
I am a very honest and open person. I respect others and I treat people the same way I expect to be treated.
I love children and I have a lot of patience.
I feel I have a lot to give/contribute and I enjoy a good challenge.
