I studied acting at the Academy of Creative Training (ACT) in Brighton, and enjoyed my time there immensely. The course was very demanding and took up a huge amount of time, but we all got great experience as we were constantly performing. The best day of the course for me, was our London Showcase at the Jermyn St Theatre. It really made all the hard work we had put in over the last two years worth it.
Whilst I love the theatre and enjoy the whole process around performing live, I have a passion for film and filmmaking and am currently (2021) studying for a Masters in filmmaking with The University of Sussex. I am a great believer in making my own work while waiting for acting jobs, and have made a number of short and micro films (some of which you can see by clicking the above link). Doing this provides me with continuous learning opportunities, both acting, directing and writing.
Outside of acting and filmmaking I run my own video production and web development business (which I've done in one form or other since 2004). This provides me with the flexibility to attend auditions at short notice and prioritise acting opportunities.
