Age: 12 yrs & 7 mths

Hi! I’m an Irish and American actor, singer and filmmaker based in Ireland. I am 12 years old.

I recently won the Youth Group section of the Reellife Science Awards with the short movie I made and started in: “How the Ear Works” 2023. I love being a member of Stage One New Music Group (SONG) and MAD Youth Thestre in Dundalk.

I’ve just finished filming the role of “Michael” in “The Grateful Farewell” short film (2024). I am featured in the Glenveagh Homes “Love Where You Live” campaign. I had a great time soloing for 5 shows in “This Way to Christmas” at the National Concert Hall last December.

When I’m not performing, I am studying for my Grade 4 Musical Theatre singing exam and Grade 2 Trinity Rock n Pop drums (2024).
