Born in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, my first taste of the stage came from being part of a local drama group at a young age. My first theatre show was closely followed by a high school musical, then it wasn't long before I was involved in an Irish drama festival and performing in a play which toured regionally.
After extensive practice in postmodern theatre forms during drama studies at University of Chester, I went on to train as an actor for a year at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire - known in my time as Birmingham School of Acting. During my time in training, I worked with and learned from many industry professionals, gaining valuable experience in singing, screen and broadcast as well as stage acting.
Now living back in Ireland, I am getting stuck into a constant range of screen and theatre work, and doing short courses which focus on various acting skills. Sometimes I lead drama workshops also, plus I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity of helping lead some drama classes in East Asia as well. I often work with Birmingham based Transition Stage Company too, as an admin and production assistant.
