Alberto co-founded KinkyFish in 2008 after attending an acting course at London’s City Academy, and contributed to the company’s name after playing half of the monster Caliban in The Tempest (too much fish sauce in his costume!).

For his role in KinkyFish's production of The Violinist in 2013, one reviewer noted Alberto's “quirky acting style” and his delivery of a “sharp and entertaining” performance.
