So far my career has taken me across the UK and overseas In France, America and Australia.

Some of these productions are; "A Winters Dream" (Cash4kids advert 2020), "Mister Mayfair" (Feature 2019), "Bringing Back Golden-eye" (Feature 2019/20), "Blank" (Feature 2018/19), "Lavender" (Short Film 2019), "Night Running" (Short Film 2019), "How You Love Me" (Theatre 2018), "Book of Monsters" (Feature 2017), "Lane" (Short 2017), "From the Mountains to the Sea" (Short film & Theatre project 2016), "Back In 2 Mins" (TV 2015) and "Ghost Ship" (Feature 2014)

(If you would like to see my CV, please find the link below, in the 'contact' section.)

My professional journey started in 2013 when I was lucky enough to get a job as a runner on the film 'Ghost ship'. My experience working on set was fantastic, I wanted to learn all there was to know about film-making. During my time on set, I worked closely with director Robert Young, who I am very thankful for teaching me the beginner ropes!
My next time on set was for a TV pilot 'Back In 2 Mins' written and director by the brilliant Nick Turnbull. Nick appreciated my dedication and drive so he asked if I wanted to work beside him on set as an assistant and off set as associate producer, this offer startled me at first but I quickly found myself in my element and knew this was a career I wanted to explore. 

During this process, I continued working as an actor while building my professional network. It wasn't long before I decided to take the step of moving over to focus primarily on production based roles.

I am originally from Anglesey in North Wales, I moved to Manchester in 2008 to study Performing Arts at college. From there I went onto study further at drama school; The Arden School of Theatre. During summer, I attended inspirational courses at Guildhall school of Music and Drama.
