I am an actor and writer based in Bristol.  I graduated from the University of the West of England in 2010 with a degree in Drama BA(hons) 2:1. I also undertook a Shortcourse in Modern Acting at Brisol Old Vic Theatre School in 2011.  Since November 2014,  I have been part of sketch comedy duo Grin And Bear It.  We are currently filming a pilot episode on location in Bristol with a local production company.  We write, produce, act, design and direct all our own work which is usually based on our own experiences and observations of society.  

Most of my acting experience is in fringe theatre, small touring productions and scratch performance evenings. Previous roles include: Alan (Parklife, 2015), Julian Scary/Presenter (Julian Scary, 2015), Mr Grey/Tony Blair (Theatre War 100, 2014), Narrator (Heaven, Hell & Snails, 2014), Digger Dempsey (Jimmy Johns Esquire: Man of Letters, 2014), Jazz (In The Absence of Grace, 2013), Nearsighted Gentleman (Subject to Requirement, 2013), Superintendent (Accidental Death of an Anarchist, 2012), Lord Escalus (Measure for Measure, 2010), Moon (The Real Inspector Hound, 2009), Showman/Barker (Woyzeck, 2008).

I am currently writing my fist play, The Bricks Are The Same.
