Eli trained in theatre in Britain, and honed his craft touring shows around the UK, gaining experience in everything from Shakespeare to pantomime. Alongside performing, he also wrote and directed for theatre.
After moving to the Netherlands, he broadened his range by becoming a voice actor and taking on roles in film and commercials. At the same time, he set up an english-language theatre group in Amsterdam and gathered a large and diverse group of actors, performing dozens of shows all over the city.
As an actor, Eli doesn't believe in any one 'method'. Every script, role, director and audience needs a different approach, requiring sensitivity and an understanding of the context. At the end of the day, acting shouldn't be about the actor, but the audience.
