I trained as an actor at the BAFTA award winning Television Workshop in Nottingham from the age of 13 and now am freelancing all over the place. The Television Workshop has started the careers of Samantha Morton, Toby Kebell, Vicky McClure, Jack O'Connell amongst many others. I have now graduated and teach my own group at The Television Workshop.

I am also the General Manager of Nottingham based theatre and production comapny Sheep Soup which is committed to making new, acessible and collaborative work using the naturalistic style of The Television Workshop. Our show Mrs Green was extremely successful and we performed sellout runs at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Nottingham Playhouse and Leicester Curve. Aswell as playing the title character, I also produced the first run and continue to freelance produce film and theatre projects.

Sheep Soup were selected as one of Ideas Tap/Leicester Curve's Breakthrough Companies and are currently developing a new show in collaboration with Curve and funded by Arts Council England.
