After training at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, I’ve had a varied career in rep, on tours and on TV & film as well as branching out into voice overs, training and directing.

Much of my early theatre work was as an actor/musician and in various tours, from large scale No.1 productions  to small scale touring village halls and small theatres.  I’ve also performed in many an open air show, site specific production and now have a good variety of Shakespearian roles under my belt, most recently, Sir Andrew Aguecheek in Twelfth Night.

In 2018, I  toured with Farnham Maltings in Brave Folk, performed at CAST in Doncaster in The Sandhouse, directed a small scale tour of The Kaiser and I, and performed in a site specific piece on Lindisfarne with Time Will Tell Theatre. I also filmed an online commercial for Freshcut creative, training films for Barksy studios and filmed my first costume drama: Sally Wainwright’s Gentleman Jack for the BBC.
