Hi, I'm tom

Acting & Performance Coach

I’m an award winning director who trained at the National Theatre Studio. I’ve worked as a director & acting coach all over the world, including for Cameron Mackintosh in the West End. And I've directed my own work in London, Europe and Off-Broadway.

I’ve collaborated with some of the world’s leading creatives like Julian Fellows and Philip Ridley, on globally renowned productions. And I've worked with Actors such as Derek Jacobi, Raven Symoné, Amy Louise Pemberton, Dylan Llewelyn, Vicky Vox, Jemima Rooper, Faith Alibi and Matt Willis on projects in a career spanning 16 years!

As a director and coach, I use theatrical techniques that have been passed down for decades combined with a fresh contemporary approach.

I currently work with clients based in London, New York, LA and Sydney!

I create a liberating and accessible environment where you can dig deep, make mistakes, achieve breakthroughs and elevate your craft with a playful approach. I’ll help you stand out.

In this new digital world the creative possibilities are endless. Are you ready to work with me?

“Tom has totally changed the way that I approach self taping and auditioning. He helped me find a route to the kind of playfulness and creativity that I find when I’m on stage so that I am enjoying the process rather than stressing! The preparation techniques that he’s given me have gotten me out of my head and now I am excited when I get to use them. I’ve booked a job and got a recall (both off tapes) since I started working with Tom and it’s definitely in part due to the work that we have done together. I could not recommend him enough!”

“This course is incredible. I used The Embodied Process to prepare for my first in-person audition in over 2 years.

I was able to walk into that room feeling so confident I actually had fun in an audition room. I had fun because I was able to really play! Oh, and I booked the job!”
