Award-winning drama school graduate available for private acting/writing coaching in East London

Methodology

I approach text from an improvisational standpoint to investigate characters. We engage heavily in hotseating, imagined scenarios and physical/vocal exercises to unlock potential, as well as unpacking the subtext. Together, we will find an honest interpretation of the text with a strong base of research and understanding. We will also discuss the logistics of auditions for drama school and professional jobs. For actor/writers, I offer dramaturgical support and help with applications to theatres.

Experience

I'm a DBS-checked, qualified actor/writer with a plethora of awards and nominations (The Bruntwood Prize, The Off-West End Awards, The Sit-Up Award, The Lillian Baylis Award) who has performed at, written and directed for multiple London theatres including Theatre503 and Camden People's Theatre, with five years of teaching experience and a first-class degree.
