I am a strong believer in everything happens for a reason and I have loved basketball for as long as I can remember. I have a passion for music and I am beginning to get into poetry.”

What kind of actor do you aspire to be?

I aspire to be a fulfilled actor. One with the ability to fit any world and do so with proficiency and hopefully be recognised for that. An actor that will give back to those that helped put him on this path and the world in which he comes from.

What performance piece did you choose for the showcase and why?

Screen: Passover by Antoniette Nwandu – I chose this piece because I know of a lot of people who have had these feelings and conversations, but they never get the chance for their wish to materialise. I wanted to bring their voices somewhere other than their road.
Stage: Unbearable Hostess by Gabriel Davis. In contrast to my other piece I enjoyed this piece and vividly saw the whole story in my head.

What book, theatre, film or TV production has most inspired you?

Books – The Alchemist, TV – Richest Man in Babylon, Atlanta, Snowfall, Power

How do you keep creative?

I keep creative by allowing myself time and space to relax and just experience life. I believe creativity stems from experience, so I try to have many experiences but also know when it is time to step back and be alone. I like to write songs, scripts and see other people’s craft.

What is the dream role you’d love to play?

My dream roles would be a pure evil antagonist like Voldemort. A role like Ghost from Power or Franklin Saint from Snowfall. Or be attached to one of my favourite franchises like Marvel or Star Wars.

What do you hope to be doing this time next year?

This time next year I hope to be building my online brand/persona, working an acting job, and looking forward to a holiday I have booked
