I have been interested in visual media for many years but finally managed to make my first tentative steps working as a Supporting Artist in the visual media industry at the end of 2006. I have worked as background, Stand-in and featured in various areas such as films, television, commercials and photographic projects.
In my spare time I am working at increasing my skill base. I have completed and passed Screen combatants Phase 1 & 2 of British Action Academy 'Warrior Course', Chief Instructor Andreas Petrides is one of the UK’s leading JISC Registered stunt performers, co-ordinators, fight arrangers and action directors.
I have attended a basic acting on camera course taught by Julia Carey at Guildford school of acting (GSA), as well as local armature dramatic workshops.
In my spare time my hobbies are Longbow archery (Archery GB classification: 1st Class) and horse riding (BHS AI & NPS Stud Assistant).
After school I worked in the equine industry for about 14yrs covering a wide range of disciplines, a year of which was spent in Australia. I have also worked in office environment (PA, Internal Auditing, Facilities Management) for a short time, which has given me other skills that I can use.
