Actor, Producer and award winning screenwriter, I have worked across a number of productions, wearing many different hats along the way. I am not afraid to try new things, and love a challenge.

As an actor, I have worked on both screen and stage, and have a master's degree from RADA. My credits include, Channel 4's Teachers, BBC's Sugar Dynasty, and feature films Lost Dogs and Mermaid Down, among others.

In production, I have produced shorts including the award winning Testimony. I have worked as a Production Assistant, Production Coordinator and Post Production Coordinator on mainly animated or mixed media Television series, including shows for Cartoon Network and Disney Jr.

I recently won several awards for my screenplay Amber's Shadow, and m currently working on a new feature. 

I'm on Hiive to expand my knowledge base, attend courses, workshops and events, to meet new faces and to learn at any given opportunity.
