Further Skills

DBS Cleared: I am used to working with children and young people with learning disabilities. For five years before acting I worked with the charity Disabilty Challengers and I toured in a Theatre in Education production of “The Railway Children”- going into Primary and SEN Schools.

Script Writer: Writing has always been a passion of mine, and at any time I will likely have multiple different scripts at various stages of development cross genres, ranging from musicals to historical dramas. With several scripts completed over lockdown, I hope to put some of these into production in the next few years.

Magician: I am experienced in performance, escapology and bar bets. Working on an original mentalism trick for future sale.

Physical/Movement: Recent projects include a run of the physical theatre play “100” (Maskers Theatre Co., October 2019).

Stand-Up Comedian: Quarter-Finalist in the South Coast Comedian of the Year Awards 2019.

Musical Theatre: I love Musical Theatre, whilst it is not my primary area of focus as a performer, it is a unique thrill that I still love when I get the chance.

Other Skills: Conversational French, stage combat, weapons handling (live firearm experience), skiing, snowboarding, hockey and running.
