Further Skills

DBS Cleared: I am used to working with children and young people with learning disabilities. For five years before acting professionally, I worked with the charity Disabilty Challengers. I have also 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 across many varying genres.

Comedian: Quarter-Finalist, South Coast Comedian of the Year Awards 2019.

Clown: Having learnt clowning from the future Britain's Got Talent 2023 Winner Viggo Venn, I am very much looking foward to experimenting with more devised comedy in rehearsals for my more light hearted upcoming projects.

Magician: I am experienced in performance, escapology and bar bets. I have also been working on my own, original, mentalism trick for future sale.

Physical/Movement: Recent projects have included a run of the physical theatre play “100” (Maskers Theatre Co., October 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: Basic French, stage combat, weapons handling (live firearm experience), skiing, snowboarding, hockey and much more.
