IF YOU WANT A READER WHO WALKS THE WALK - I've consistently booked prime time TV and movie jobs, and want to help make your audition the best it can be. I have first hand experience acting in shows starring Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Peter Capaldi, and alike!

I was theatre trained at Drama Studio London whose graduates include Forest Whitaker and Emily Watson.

I ALSO DO CAREER ONE TO ONES - If you just want to chat about career tactics I'm here for it too! I'm a believer in helping people find their 'thing' that no-one else can bring. I do sessions about helping actors find new motivation, and new practical tactics to advance their career.
