ABOUT ME

IMG_8972_edited.jpg

Harry is passionate about people – what drives them, what makes them laugh and what TV series they’re currently binge watching! With a genuine warmth and ability to entertain and relate, Harry strives for the best in everything he does, from acting to social media content as well as presenting and providing voice overs.


With a large repertoire of diverse roles under his belt already, Harry started his career as an actor. Continuously appearing in school plays, he completed his A-Levels at Chigwell School in Essex before going on to study acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Since graduating from his course, he has performed on world renowned stages such as Shakespeare’s The Globe, Sam Wannamaker Playhouse and Her Majesty’s Theatre as well as stints at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has appeared on screen for TV and Film roles.


Alongside his acting work, Harry is a broadcaster, voice over artist, self-proclaimed motorsport fanatic and entertainment buff with a keen interest in electric and sustainable technology. This has led to him working for and presenting programmes on radio and television as well as producing content for online. Past credits include reporting for Magic FM and Sirius XM during the 2017 Olivier Awards, The FIA Formula E Championship for CNN, Formula One Coverage for BBC Radio 5 Live, British Airways and Age UK - all before he was 21!  


Harry can talk a lot, but he can also write! Having started a small blog when he was 16 years old focussed around motorsport, Harry has since honed his journalistic skills and written and contributed to work published in the Daily Mail Sports section among other online outlets.


Social Media is a key part of life today, and Harry is all over it. As well as regularly updating his own feeds with fresh, informative and entertaining content, he also acts as a social media producer and consultant. Harry has worked with fellow British Presenter Nicki Shields for several years and is responsible for managing and developing her profile.


Harry splits his time between London, Essex and Norwich. He was born in Leytonstone, London and is currently studying for a degree at the University of East Anglia.
