Welcome
to My Site

Thanks for stopping by, I am a Dublin-based Actor who has graduated from The Lir Academy in Association with RADA and Trinity College. This is my little bit of the internet. I will be updating this page regularly with information on what I am performing as well as updating this site with clips, posts etc. I was  one of the first 15 to have graduated with a BA
Honours degree in acting at The Lir Academy.
During my time there I got to work with some of the most acclaimed working directors and theatre makers
in Ireland and abroad and was exposed to a wide range of different styles and approaches to acting.
My most recent work was playing multiple parts in production by Shiva Theatre Productions in The
National Botanic Gardens for their Summer Season 2018 which received acclaimed reviews from the Irish
Times and marked as the theatre highlight of the summer.
Other notable mentions are his role as Deco in the production “Running with Dinosaurs” Which received
positive reviews and his role as King in “Nine” as part of The Fringe Festival 2017 which won the Fringe
Wild Card Production and was nominated for best performer. He also played a small supporting part in
Season 7 of Game of Thrones
