Ever since I was a child, I have been a performer. I was always in school and after school productions, even in sixth form I helped in the productions being shown in my school. My acting range spans from improvisation and stand-up Comedy, to genuinely demanding roles and roles that require topless and even full length nudity.
It was in 2006 when I got an agent, and she got me numerous parts for me. I appeared several times as a walk-on extra in Hollyoaks. And I loved it...
I loved the experience; the people, seeing how it all works behind the cameras, the settings and the effort that goes into everthing we see that has no second though paid to it. A spectacle that made this career path for me even more fascinating.

My voice has had the acclaim of being used on a university podcast. (Edgehill, Ormskirk) and I want to keep on trying out these new experiences. I think my voice has a particualar 'USP' about it and i would like to use it to it's fullest ability.

In April 2013 my Agent (United Artistes casting agency) got me a place on the set of 'Soldier of the Damned' (release due late 2013/'14) being filmed in Greystoke Forest, Cumbria. I was costume fitted, trained to properly hold period correct firearms, I had prosthetics and special effects equipment supplied. It was one of the best, most productive days I've had yet...

Within the same casting Agency, In February 2014 I was drafted into becoming an Extra in A Horrible Histories movie productions called 'Bill'. Based upon the life of William Shakespeare's (Not actually), In the film it protrayed the brilliance and Originality of Shakespeare's work. So much so that it scared people, it was deemed illicit and ungodly. And Shakespeare's life was at stake. Soldiers were marshalled into service and They weren't the most...hmm...'capable' of military assets.
For this we were filming all over the Country. And as a testament to my working ethic- I didn't miss a single shoot.

I want to do everything, I'm completely impartial to any acting and/ or voiceover work. I want to get myself out there.

I've never been the type to shy away from opportunities. For me, It all starts here...

Modelling

Modeling experience

Beginner, starting out


Novice- starting out.

I was asked to model underwear for Littlewoods and had my snapshots ready, but I was dropped from the line-up. They requested, unknowing to me, a mixed race or any Non- caucasian model. But other than that, I enjoyed the experience and the photographers said that I had a good body shape and a strong bone structure. So that was confidence building; definitely worth my time and would definitely try out again.

TV & Reality

It was in 2006 when I got an agent, and she got me numerous parts for me. I appeared several times as a walk-on extra in Hollyoaks. And I loved it...
I loved the experience; the people, seeing how it all works behind the cameras. A spectacle that made this career path for me even more fascinating.

I really would be open to any Television exposure and this is really where i want to focus on. I think, with my demeanour and confidence in talking, would be suited to presenting or hosting.
