I work as a freelance Acting Coach and Actor Trainer, with a busy Private Practice in London for both professional Actors and those undergoing training. I graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Acting and a Diploma in Professional Acting from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and hold a Masters in Actor Training And Coaching (Distinction) from The Royal Central School Of Speech And Drama, specialising in Play within Actor Training and with a focus on primary training and queer pedagogy. I have worked as a Visiting Professional at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (BA Acting, CDT), as well as teaching Acting at LAMDA (BA and MA/MFA Acting), East 15 (BA Acting and Community Theatre). Previous work includes: Associate Lecturer at St Mary's University, Twickenham; and Visiting Lecturer at Brunel University.
I offer a bespoke coaching service that places the individual’s needs at its heart. Whatever your requirements - whether that be to learn new skills, refine existing talents, destabilise what you know already … or simply to play – they will always be positioned as a prime focus of any session.
