Carwyn trained in theatre and media at Aberystwyth University and graduated with an MA in 2016. His first professional directing role was on Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch’s Hudo / Tempted – produced in partnership with Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner – discussing the sexual exploitation of young people. The production was nominated for numerous Arts & Business Cymru awards in 2019 and won two, including the evening’s main arts award. In January 2020, Carwyn spent a week in Austria training in biomechanics and physical theatre with NIPAI (New International Performing Arts Institute). He is currently working with Syrian Graphic Novelist Hamid Sulaiman and Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch to adapt Hudo/Tempted into a graphic novel.

Outside of acting and directing, Carwyn writes and performs comedy. In 2019, Carwyn was the overall winner of NFYFC’s After Dinner Speaking competition over England and Wales. He is currently taking part in a Narrative Comedy Writing course run by the British Comedy Guide and his script reached the longlist of an international sitcom writing competition.
