Hello:)
I'm an actor from Manuel Puro (Casting Director) Acting Habit Community. I work in classical theatre, but I also have experience with contemporary plays and screen acting.
I am an excellent listener, and I don't mind running things as many times as necessary in order to help you get the best performances possible. I give precise, constructive feedback in a non-aggressive way.
I speak English with an American accent: I can do a French accent though, or speak in French if you need me to!
I love dramatic arts, I love stories, I love words, and I look forward to meeting you all, and working together: let's get these jobs!

I trained at the Royal Conservatoire in Glasgow, and at the Cours Clément in Paris. I can act in English and French.
I signed my first contract with a professional theatre company, South Devon Players Theatre and Film Company, to play in their production of Henry V (upcoming, Bristol Shakespeare Festival, 2021).
I played in Count Almaviva in "Le Mariage de Figaro" in Paris (2020), the Big Bad Wolf in Little Red Riding Hood (2019), and I also acted in a short-movie, "France Contrôle".
I moved to the UK to pursue a career in acting. I read the Complete Works of William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe (in English), and am now reading Molière's in French.
I hold a degree in Ethnobotany from the University of Lille, and a Master's Degree in Anthropology from the School for Advanced Research in Social Sciences.
I've been living on and off the Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona for the past eleven years. I was adopted by an elder there, and I'm learning the Diné language.
Before becoming an actor, I taught foraging and wild edible plant cooking. I also write poetry (in iambic pentameters mostly).
Yes, my life is strange, but then what can you do...
