About me

I’ve always had a passion to be a part of exciting diverse projects that appeal to all audiences as an actor & a writer. I’ve had the chance to put on and be a part of productions with several well known theatre companies & theatre venues most notably Talawa Theatre Company, Emergency Exit Arts & Oval House Theatre. As an actor I’ve gained a wealth of experience having been involved in a variety of theatre & film projects. A Krik Krak Production ,Bigfoot Theatre Company, Talawa Theatre, Oval House & Arcola Theatre are just some of the companies I've been lucky to work with & learn from. "KRUNCH", my first professional show as a writer and actor, was a hybrid of movement, poetry & acting, at Bernie Grant Arts Centre led series of performances in a part of Grahamstown Arts Festival in South Africa and a tour in England. My main focus of late has been my role as a playwright and screenwriter. I’ve been writing plays & one plays from a young age within my church community dealing with morality & teen dilemmas. In 2011 I began an apprenticeship role as Writer Associate working with 14- 18 year drama group. My role was to write a play based on devised scenes created within their workshop. This apprenticeship led to a screenwriting opportunity writing ‘Story We Need To Hear’ in support of Youth Media Agency’s ‘Press Change For Youth’ campaign & my first professional play, OnDisTing, one of two headline plays during Oval House’s 33% London Festival 2013 in April. I'm currently working on 'The Book of Reuben' a one man show about my journey out of Christianity and 'Oh Life and Times' an online comedy series. My main goal for the future of my career is to work as an actor/writer in the four mediums of radio, theatre, television & film. I'm very much obsessed with telling good stories it's something I hope to continue to do.
