I am an Advanced Actor-Combatant with the BASSC, holding Distinctions in Rapier & Dagger, Unarmed, Swashbuckling, Broadsword, Sword & Shield, Small Sword & Quarterstaff.
I have performed violence as an actor for stage and screen, in addition to working as a combat specialist on behalf of the Royal Opera House & National Geographic, among others.
As the Artistic Director of FIGHT REP, I created a project that helps actors improve their screen combat skills through repertory fight scene production with working industry fight directors, simultaneously honing my own skills as a director of action.
I provide choreography and skill-share workshops for theatrical productions and films. I have choreographed on a variety of scales, from one-on-one unarmed fights to medieval battles with up to twenty combatants. I have experience working in a range of spaces, including in-the-round, thrust, and proscenium theatrical spaces, as well as for many different genres of film, using a wide range of fighting styles.
I am not a teacher. I am a practitioner. I have an expansive network of excellent stage combat teachers located throughout the UK and beyond, and I am always happy to provide recommendations for training.
