I studied Politics and Sociology at Newcastle University. It was here that acting really took over and the decision was made that it was the only career that I could seriously consider taking on. Being a large and active part of theatre and comedy societies where I was successful winning awards and ultimately sitting on the executive committee.

Having graduated in 2013 I then embarked upon my chosen path, but deciding not to attend drama school due to the financial implication of such a venture. In going about it 'the old fashioned way' and learning on the job, a clear progression can be seen in my screen work as I continually look more and more comfortable on screen. 'Eveline' was reasonably well received, but more recently in 'Father Figure' I have been able to maintain character much more strongly and I consider it to be my finest work on film so far.

Further projects are on both stage and screen with Dayton Price in Danny Stones' play 'The Greatest Game in the World' (July 2015) and the short film 'Whiteblade' by Mark Hindman-Smith and directed by Stuart Gilmartin (2016).
