I am a young actor based in the West Midlands with a background in regional theatre, from performing and directing Shakespeare to exploring hilarious and challenging new work. I work professionally in both theatre and film and am quietly working on my own play. I love to tell stories that move and inspire, and I’ve always had a reputation for absolutely throwing myself into whatever project comes my way, there’s no other way to be!
I trained at Birmingham Ormiston Academy, exploring a massive range of characters such as Caliban in ‘The Tempest’ which inspired me to lead several workshops on animal movement, and got me an award for best male classical actor in my year. After performing as Andy Fastow in ‘Enron’ and completing my training at BOA I returned to co-direct a movement intensive version of ‘Coriolanus’. Almost straight after this, I was accepted into the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain.
Whilst training, I have also been working with the Birmingham Repertory Theatre for 7 years, performing in the Main House production of Evan Placey’s ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ as Dr Lanyon most recently. In the fateful year 2020, I landed both the parts of Romeo in Romeo and Juliet and Winston in 1984, and worked as an assistant movement director on Lord of the Flies. (Naturally these productions were postponed.) I have also dipped my hand in musical theatre with Wolverhampton Youth Musical Theatre, last performing as Amos Hart in ‘Chicago’.
Personally, you can usually find me rolling around town on a unicycle getting peeped at by amused workmen! I’m also fascinated by spirituality, environmental issues and mental health; I love exploring those big ideas that shape us as people and as society and digging into them to find any gems that might be inside.
