Telling a story clearly and creatively is my highest priority at work, whether I’m the Cary Grant or the Errol Flynn. I see fun in the classics, and am not afraid to admit to you that I cried last night during a production of The Winter’s Tale (true story).
When it comes to acting, I’m more Laurence Olivier than Dustin Hoffman, and make notes on my script in pencil as a reminder of the flexibility needed for collaboration (also for the crossword on the train). I believe work ethic is contagious, and I lead others to excellence by showing up on time with an open mind and positive attitude.
I’ve been working in theatre, TV, film and voiceover in New York City, Ireland, and the United Kingdom for over 15 years. I’m also a writer and producer, and co-run a theatre company in Dublin called AboutFACE, whose mission is approachable theatre, narrative-driven texts, and solid storytelling.
Because of my experience creating work, the audience always comes first, and I know the risk and trust involved in hiring an actor to fully realize your story. Simply put, I’m addicted to the intimacy of shared experience, and sharing stories with an audience has never ceased to thrill me since I started in my final year of secondary school.
As someone who shares my addiction, I meet you here with respect for your knowledge and love of story (and a whiskey by the hearth to geek out about dramatic structure). I’m excited to share what I have to offer in service to the story you want to tell.
