Coaching

Background and training

I am a professional actor with over 20 years’ experience working in Ireland, the UK and North America on productions with the BBC, MGM, Amazon, AMC and Universal Pictures.

My training is from the Gaiety School of Acting in Dublin and Sir Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute of the Performing Arts.

Before moving to Vancouver from Belfast, I set up The Group, a space for new and established actors to apply their craft through scene and audition study, in collaboration with Emmy award-winning casting director Carla Stronge.

My aim with my coaching is that you end up submitting an audition in which you’re entirely happy and confident.
