At the age of 11 I discovered my love of performing and a passion for acting appearing in “Les Miserables” at the Palace Theatre in London’s West End. I went on to study at the Central School of Speech and Drama and obtained a BA degree in Acting. Recent years I have been working alongside artistic director Dominic Kelly, contributing to the growth of the salon:collective, an emerging theatrical enterprise which performs regularly at the Cockpit Theatre.
In the last two years I discovered the Meisner technique that has inspired me to create my own theatrical vehicle: Front Foot Theatre using Meisner at its core. The very nature of the Meisner technique allows for an organic development of a piece, which gives more freedom for an actor’s instincts to flourish. We are now a large pool of Meisner-trained actors who have been developing our ideas and skills and fine-tuning our technique.
Working as an established photographer has helped me to contribute to marketing and visuals in order to promote my projects efficiently.
