In 2011, I was in my first award-winning film 'The Decline of Thaumaturgy.' Since then, I've featured in a number of award-winning and festival selected films including 'Hoodie Holocaust', 'Bare Feet' and 'Payback.'
My background is in media and to date, I've worked on two Microsoft events as a unit operator, lighting technician and editor: Microsoft Pitch Event in Camden and Future Decoded where I edited talks by Professor Brian Cox and Elite creator David Bresben.
In 2012, I produced a web series pilot called 'Faithless' starring Call of Duty voice actor Billy Murray.
To date, I've directed music videos for Grieve, MDNGHT, Kardanski and Red Judy.
My short film 'Paths to Destruction' was awarded the media prize by Salford University in 2013.
I've directed ADR for my short films The Critic, Paths to Destruction and Dig. I voice directed a collection of animated sketches: 'Toaster Portal', 'The Cat That Pillages' and 'Peoplegotchi.'
My other voice directing work includes a commissioned advertisement for System Thirty-Five Kitchens and Bedrooms.
Since beginning to seriously pursue voice work, I've been cast in two projects that are currently in production: the much anticipated Skyrim mod 'The Forgotten City' and an 'Eragon' audiobook.

After years of performing in short films and working with some of the UK's finest independent directors on films like Bedside, Bare Feet and Hoodie Holocaust, I've decided to focus my attention on voice work as I prefer the process to film.
Since beginning to audition for projects at the end of July this year, I have been cast in two roles:
Hjormund in The Forgotten City, Video Game: Skyrim mod, dir: Nick Pearce

Coming from a background where I studied and pursued a range of media, I'm fairly versatile and open to new challenges. That said, since starting to pursue voice work seriously, it's seems obvious that my strength lies in voicing characters for Fantasy driven fiction.
