I am an Actor, Voice Over and Collaborative Artist from Dublin, Ireland. I have been acting for many years with a keen interest in all things Drama, Theatre, Film and Performance.
I graduated in 2014 with a BA (Honours) Degree in Drama (Performance) from the Conservatory of Music and Drama, DIT. While there I trained with some of the best Practitioners in Film, Theatre and Performance from Ireland and Internationally.
From an early age I have been interested in Drama. I did Speech and Drama for many years in school before attending the National Performing Arts School (N.P.A.S) in my teens, run by Eamon Farrell and Jill Doyle. I attended the N.P.A.S up until the age of 20. Acting, Singing, Dancing and Musical Theatre was part of my training while attending. I did a number of productions under their direction to sold out Olympia Theatre shows. It was here that my love for drama turned from being a hobby to wanting to pursue it as my career of choice.
Recently I have performed in a number of different theatre productions. Some of which were in regular theatre settings and others in the less conventional. They have been varied in both style and content. They include Brokentalkers and junk ensemble’s It Folds which was staged on the Abbey Theatre’s Peacock Stage during the 2015 Dublin Fringe Festival. It Folds is now on a UK tour to The Bristol Old Vic and Summerhall, Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival 2016. I performed in the Space Upstairs at the Project Arts Centre, Dublin, in John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath directed by Mark Lambert. I also featured with two other performers in the collaborative performance of Always and Again curated and directed by visual artists Laura Cooper and Seamus McCormack.
With regard to On screen work, I have also been busy. I was cast as Carl in One Productions’ Genie In A Bottle for their promo to RTÉ’s Storyland series and also cast in the new TV3 production Ireland’s Greatest Robberies. I also appeared in the independent feature film RCP6 directed by Garry Miley and Luxury directed by Stephen Agnew. Another project I’m very proud to have been apart of was the Dublin Simon Community’s Dining For Simon.
In the past, I have done a number of other theatre productions including W.B Yeats’ The Player Queen, Jim Cartwright’s Road and Five Nights at the Samuel Beckett Theatre. Five Nights went on to tour and was also the first ever play to be performed at Electric Picnic in 2008. I was also cast as Mick Tracey in Stolen Child, which was performed at the Axis Theatre, Ballymum before being taken to Calgary in Canada for the Acting Irish International Festival 2011 where it was performed in the Vertigo Theatre.
I have also been lucky enough to feature in a number of music videos. Let’s Start A Trend by 21Demands who are now Kodaline, Hold On by Róisín O and the Irish MTV award winning video Florida by the Funeral Suits.
Between acting jobs I’ve travelled to many different countries all over the world gaining life experiences. I hope to put these experiences back into my craft, theatre and filmmaking as I now see myself not only as an Actor but also as Collaborative Artist where Performance is at the forefront.
Lately, I have been trying my hand at writing and completed the Nine Week Playwriting Course with Fishamble Theatre Company. I am also a participant of HatchLK Artist Development Scheme 2016. With HatchLk, I recently had a showcase of my work in progress, Fatherhood And Nationhood in The Belltable, Limerick. I wrote and directed a site-specific short play Bus Stop which was performed on location in Rathmines. Also I was part of a group who devised, wrote and acted in the short film Room 501, co-directed by Vinny Murphy and Peter McDermott which was screened in Cineworld, Dublin during 2014. I have a number of other theatre and short film projects that I’d like to see come to fruition.
I continue to act, write, devise and share with others. Please do get in touch with me.
