Performer

I am an actor and spoken word artist with an extensive background in devised theatre. I have worked in theatre, film and radio, as well as appearing as a guest on various podcasts and radio stations. I love storytelling and the many different forms it can take. In the theatre, for example, I love building a rapport with the audience. As such, I also have experience in both interactive and immersive theatre, having worked on Secret Cinema’s Blade Runner.
