To be or not... Yup, I'm an Actor.
I graduated in 2008 from the University of West London with a 1st class degree in Film. After a few months of working as a set runner, I was offered a role in a TV commercial, liked it and decided to give it acting a go.
So I went on to study acting at the New York Conservatory of Dramatic Arts (New York, USA), the Actors Temple (London, UK.) and more recently at the Identity School of Acting (London, UK).
And I have since worked as an actor on T.V. shows such as BBC's Holby City, and Panorama. As well as working on various awards winning short films (Mosa - Iris Prize Winner, Zaire - Nahemi Prize Winner: Encounters Film Festival).
I also regularly work for National Film & Television School on various test shoots.
I still make use of my filmmaking skills and creates his own short films, writing, directing, as well as acting in.
I know it sounds like a lot, but my films have gone on to screen at many international short film festivals, like the London Short Film Festival (UK), Black Harvest Film Festival (USA) and the BAFTA qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival to mention a few... So I'm at least doing something(s) right, haha.
