I am a 27 year old Actor/Writer/Presenter, who studied Acting and Script writing at Manchester Metropolitan University.

I have been working professionally as an Actor for 3 years now, in which time I have worked in every medium ranging from Film and Theatre, to Improvisation and Voice Over. I have worked for the BBC, ITV, 24/7 festival, The national trust, as well as various theatre companies such as Organised Chaos. This will be my third time working with the company, though only the first on a full production.

I was intrigued when I heard about Light Speed. Apart from the brilliant locations the show would be on, the North West tour and the funding attached, I was attracted by the prospect of the script. The play lends itself to telling a story in an unfamiliar way- It starts at the end and works its way to the beginning. But the characters have so much depth, with there being a great opportunity to explore the relationship between the two with a non linear time frame. Also, the fact the story may appear subjective to each character and the emotional issues both face, it allows us as actors to find a hidden reality from the trauma both suffer.

Organised Chaos seem to be a company on the up. They have good solid connections across the North West, have secured Arts Funding at a time where, economically, the country isn’t at its strongest and the Arts are being heavily cut, whilst providing a platform for performers based in Manchester to showcase their ability. Hard work and commitment usually prevail, so lets hope this is the start of things to come when it comes to Organised Chaos. I will certainly be looking to work with them in the not too distant future.
