Actor / Singer

  • Location: Manchester
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available Soon

I'm a Manchester-based actor/singer looking to explore all sides of television, theatre and film production. At university, I performed in student theatre and musical productions and from that I developed a passion for creating real and thought-provoking dramatic works. I embarked on the path to becoming a professional actor only last November having spent a number of years in a completely different career longing to break away and fulfil my dream of becoming an actor. Having made the decision to pursue this I have since thrown myself into the independent arts scene and now have stage, short film and independent feature film experience.

I am also aspiring to move into television and more feature films both in front of and behind the camera. Recently I organised a four-day production shoot spread over three locations which resulted in the production of 27 short films. I took on the role of executive producer spending a number of months planning the production and sourcing 14 different actors, including myself, as well as a crew to shoot the short films  back to back. This was for the purpose of obtaining material for showreels. I enjoyed the experience immensely and hope to do more of the same.

Although I am based in the North West I am willing to travel for a production. Please see my CV for further details and experience and please contact me if you have any opportunities that you would like to discuss.
