I'm really enthusiastic and if the script looks good am willing to give it my all.
My acting experience consists of mainly indie films but I've read An Actor Prepares so let's do this!

I know barre chords, a scale or two and am generally not so bad at playing rhythm guitar. So, if you're starting up a local band, drop me a line. I feel like performing live could be kinda fun.

Film & Stage Crew

Directing & Writing ability


Post Production & Editing ability


Runner or Assistant ability


My lifetime fascination for filmmaking has led me to shoot short films, documentaries, music videos, reviews and work as a runner on two graduate productions for The National Film & Television School. Yet it has not helped me conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given me clairvoyance enough to find the Rebel's hidden fort.

Feature Film: Things I Have To Say June 2018
Directed, shot and edited a light-hearted documentary
about a struggling poet touring Wales.

Feature Film: ‘Mnemophrenia’ August 2017
Provided grip work, helped with catering and preparing a reflective surface for a technical science fiction film sequence

NFTS Short: 'Until The River Runs Red’ July 2009
Carrying equipment, catering, stewarding the public in Black Park, Buckinghamshire, delivering rushes to the lab every night. Quite an eye-opener; this short also won a BAFTA that year.

NFTS Short: 'Neighbours' April 2009
Carrying sound and lighting equipment, catering and washing up.
Had a great learning experience talking to sparks, the focus puller, art director, make-up artists, fighting coordinator and had conversations with the producer about wide and long lenses.


Photography experience

Amateur photographer

Photography website

You'll often find me with a roll of film in my pocket and I'm no stranger to the joys and heartaches of Super 8. That said, I'm not a time traveller. I do own a DSLR.
