Self-tapes are stressful, aren't they?! I'm really easy-going and happy to work along with you in whatever way makes you most comfortable and confident. I love being a reader, it is just such fun, and yet another way for me to practice my craft.

I trained as a teenager in England exclusively for the stage. In the past few years, I have returned to acting, adding screen work to my portfolio.
I mainly do drama, (including a lot of Shakespeare) but I have been known to turn my hand to comedy as well.
I am based in Wellington, New Zealand.
Not that it's at all relevant but I have also been a fish biologist, immunologist, meteorologist, naval officer, and underwater wildlife cameraman.

I trained as an actor in the UK as a teenager and did a lot of theatre. I then did no acting until a few years ago when I got back into stage work and, more recently screen. One short film that I was in, "The Haka", was selected for Cinema des Antipodes Cannes Cinephiles, & the Festival des Antipodes, Saint-Tropez, 2021.

In between, I have been a fish biologist, immunologist, meteorologist, naval officer, and underwater wildlife cameraman.
