About Me

After 26 years as a fire fighter I am now fulfilling my burning ambition to act on stage and screen bringing years of life experience to the roles I portray.

I am a hard working and dedicated actor who is greatly castable. I am equally at home portraying a wide variety of characters, whether they are extreme Characterisations or the Lead role.

I left school to serve an apprenticeship as a Welder, a trade that I remained in for ten years or so before making a dramatic career change as a Firefighter. That was twenty-seven years ago and it is this life experience that I draw upon to create strong believable characters both on stage and screen.

My professional approach and enthusiasm make me an excellent team player who is great to have on set or in the rehearsal room. I take direction very well and apply the detail to ensure the end product is as required.

Entering the entertainment business at a relatively late stage in life I have performed primarily in Theatre productions very quickly becoming a lead Actor.

I have recently diversified and developed my career into Film, T.V and Commercial work.

I have received training at The Poor School and The Actors Centre where I continue to attend in order to maintain and improve my acting techniques, a true mark of my professional approach and attention to detail.
