ALRA Acting Schools in London & Manchester

Board of Trustees

I am a young actor, director, writer and producer from Selby in Yorkshire. I made my professional stage debut aged only nine and my professional TV debut aged sixteen. I completed a BA(Hons) in acting at the Academy of Live and Recorded arts between 2008-2011. In 2010 I founded Black Coffee Theatre with two friends, I am also Creative Associate for touring Shakespeare company Permanently Bard and the Audience Development, Outreach & Fundraising Officer for The Hope Theatre in Islington.

I am working hard to create theatre for new as well as existing audiences and move away from the elitism that surrounds a lot of professional theatre. I am a proud supporter of Equity’s Professionally Made, Professionally Paid campaign.
