About Me

I am a 22-year-old actor, originally from Haywards Heath, West Sussex. I have been acting since a young age starting at various after school drama clubs. I am currently studying BA (Hons) Acting and Performance at the University of Creative Arts in Farnham, and will be graduating in July 2023.

During my time at university, I have studied a range of different theatre practitioners such as Stanislavski, Brecht, Hagen to name a few. I continue to utilise their methods in my own work. I have also done a considerable amount outside work such as starring in short films and also have experience on set by working as a background artist, featuring in multiple films, TV shows and adverts. Also working alongside actors such as Martin Freeman, Zendaya and James Cosmo.

I am very passionate about acting and would aspire to start my own theatre company based in Brighton. I also look to work abroad.

I also pursue hobbies such as baking, watching live sport, entering quizes and spending quality time with friends and family.

I am a paid up member of Spotlight, Equity and BECTU. I also have a Basic DBS Certificate.
