Profile Information

What I do:
A little more about me:
An enthusiastic and outgoing actor who likes to take risks and be put out of my comfort zone and always looks for a challenge. I hail from the Rhondda Valleys, born and bred, and have always been a little bit of a performer since my school days (usually the cheeky naughty one who wouldn't shut up until someone put a script in my hands and challenged me to say it out loud on stage in front of people - that soon shut me up!).

I love the craft of acting, specifically on stage and film and am eager to do as many productions as i can. The type of experience i'm looking for is to work with talented people who inspire me and encourage to bring out the best in me, and in doing so to give back to others in that shared experience.

I consider myself to be energetic, creative, open to criticism, punctual and hard working and an actor who has a big heart and good sense of fun! I love meeting new people and working with them on interesting projects whether as a lead, co-lead/supporting character; collaborating with others to create a work of art that is both meaningful and hopefully educational. But above all, i love to make friends, network and perform in front of crowds. I love the excitement, the adrenaline, the surge and joy of satisfaction when the crowd go wild with everyone's performances after a good nights entertainment!

I guess you can call me your typical struggling, jobbing actor constantly looking for work, looking to expand my horizons and spread my wings and make some good friends and meet some interesting people along the way on my journey. Though I've attended acting workshops and the summer schools at Drama Schools, I've never been fortunate enough to have any residencies in them, but i keep trying year after year. I hate suffering rejections, like every actor, but a few years of doing this has taught me to pick myself up, dust myself off and try again. So i guess that makes me one persistent little bastard.

All in all, I'm just looking for an opportunity; as an actor from an ethnic minority i can honestly say there aren't that many chances given, but i hope to change things up and see if i fit well here with you guys, so i thought the National Theatre Wales would be a good place to start
Porth, Rhondda Valleys
Projects I’m working on:
Just finished a professional W W 2 short film - A Chequer Board of Knights which will be a feature soon, but I'm currently working on a play called Crowds and Power to be performed at the Sherman Theatre this summer
