With over 17 years experience in many performance mediums, I am a graduate of the University of Bristol’s prestigious Acting Academy course, and have contributed to local theatre, fringe venues (including Edinburgh), radio, student/short films, corporate training videos and international television.

Highlights have included the role of Associate 1 in The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies for ITV, and the chance to play 5 different characters in an adaptation of the RSC’s Nicholas Nickleby at the QEH Theatre. My portrayal on Tony Blair in a devised play at Bristol Community Festival was also very rewarding. Other roles include the challenging part of Dracula in a new version of Bram Stoker’s novel at The Bierkeller, and Dr Watson in The Hound of the Baskervilles with Brass Works Theatre. Recent theatre work has included 3 plays for Bristol company Oooh Arrr Productions, including the well-reviewed Great Expectations and The Diary of Anne Frank.

Roleplay work has been undertaken for the University of Bristol and BPP Law School exams, corporate training/selection with Roleplay UK, a domestic abuse awareness training programme for Southside and a knife crime reduction scheme with Gloucester Constabulary. I am also on the InterAct Stroke Support reading team at Southmead Hospital.

With a clear and authoritative voice I have contributed readings to many Radio 4 documentaries, and have helped out television programme makers by providing guide commentaries on several Natural History films. I also relished the part of a fire and brimstone-style vicar for German television.
