About me:

After graduating from Guildhall, I went on to work for the BBC in both film ('Lady in the Van' directed by Sir Nicholas Hytner) TV ('Holby City'). I've also worked in theatre extensively ( two world tours with Cheek By Jowl 2014 'Tis Pity She's a Whore' and 2017 'The Winters Tale'). I'm currently based in Dublin where I've recently shot the short films 'Belong Together' and 'Back Home'. I'm currently adapting my one-man show 'The Manny" for screen.
