I started my career as an Actor, first working on Aileen Gonsalves’ production of A Winter's Tale as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company's Youth Ensemble 2009. I studied BA Acting at Bath Spa University, where I played Owen Marshall in Elen Bowmen’s production of Semi-Monde by Noel Coward. This played at the Ustinov, Theatre Royal Bath and then toured to Santa Monica, USA. Work after graduation included The Lady in the Van at the Bath Theatre Royal, directed by Jonathan Church and Warner Brothers’ Fantastic Beasts the Crimes of Grindelwald.

 

At Bath Spa, my graduation piece was directing a production of Those Legs by Noel Clarke for the Bath Fringe 2017. I found my passion for directing through this project and it led to my return to Bath to study MA Directing in 2018. During my studies, I was the assistant director to Kirstie Davis on Our Country's Good and have recently directed Radiant Vermin by Philip Ridley for the Bath SparkFest 2019. Recently I was the assistant director on a five-star production of Daddy Long Legs at the Barn Theatre. I was the assistant director on a Bath Spa Production of Carmen by Bizet, which unfortunately got cut short due to Covid-19.

I am currently producing and co-presenting an arts and culture radio show, on Radio Bath called The Arts Show with Nik and Nigel

We have three main aims underpinning the show: 

1. To raise the profile of the South West so that it is recognised as the leading creative region in Britain.

2. To provide access to the Arts (performance, training and knowledge) to members of our community from underrepresented backgrounds.

3. To inspire everybody to be creative every single day.

You can listen to the show every Sunday, 10 am-12 pm online, D.A.B Radio or on a smart speaker.
