Since graduating from Mountview Theatre School, my experiences have taken me from performing as a dog in London’s Regents Park Open Air Theatre, dressing up as Dame or playing Buttons at the world famous Leeds city variety Theatre or even petruchio or a rugby playing teacher in Up ‘n’ Under.
My acting has also given me a chance to include my musical skills in several of the shows I have performed in from piano and drums for the 40’s touching show moonlight serenade to a full thrashing of the drums during the punk musical Too Much Too Young.
For production shots please take a look at some of my pictures» or to see some of my reviews:
I am an experienced role play actor who has many years of experience at creating believable characters for many different situations and work with many different role play providers. I have lots of experience in working specifically in areas of management,leadership, medical, psychiatry, interview technique, one to one’s and health and safety.
I am also highly skilled in working with individuals in bespoke role play and deliver this on a regular basis for a leading financial organisation in the UK. I am confident and skilled in giving positive and constructive feedback.
Some of the companies I have delivered role play situations for are; National Grid, Liverpool University, Leeds University, NHS, Nottingham Homes, Skipton Building Society, Network Rail, Birmingham City Council, Anglian Water.
I am a confident presenter. I have accumulated over 7000 hours experience delivering unscripted pieces to camera in a live TV situation, as well as working with scripts and delivering corporate messages using green screen and auto cue.
I am highly proficient in working with live talk back and listening to directors and producers. I have presented documentary style films in some of the most challenging places on Earth, including up mount Kilimanjaro and 800 metres down in a gemstone mine. I am reliable and trustworthy and I believe a good team player. I can produce tension and drama in front of the camera when required and deliver any message with clarity and belief, but I also believe I have a fun, relaxed and casual style of presenting tone.

Corporate training and Team Building
Facilitating events has been a skill I have been learning for several years and hope to continue learning for many years to come. I am Belbin accredited and I am always looking at increasing my knowledge on human behaviour. I find this work both challenging and rewarding at the same time. I have worked on many subjects from customer service, behavioral Health and Safety, Equality and Diversity and presentation skills.I am used to working in any size groups from 5 to 500, and have delivered events to delegates from a companies “shop floor” staff right up to board level of some of the largest business in both the financial sector, and large industrial production of anything from nuclear energy to aviation. I have good coaching skills and I am also highly experienced in running drama based activities including forum theatre exercises and hot seating.
Corporate entertainment is also something I am heavily involved with and really enjoy,and I have designed and delivered several large team building events myself. These have included an “I’m not a celeb get me out of here”,including real bugs and scorpions, A Star wars themed team building, A giant pub Quiz, an indoor olympics and a huge interactive murder mystery involving 14 actors at a beautiful stately home for an multi national company conference. Numbers of people that attended these events ranged from 120 to 260 delegates.I have also delivered events in Abu Dhabi and Dubai and many other hotels around the UK.

Singing is something I love and while studying at Mountview Theatre School I was awarded the Mountview Singing Scholarship. I am a strong bass baritone with a range from Lower C to G. I am also highly proficient at group harmony work and a strong sight reader. To hear a sample of my voice please click on my singing demo »
My accent is a natural London accent with a smooth quality to it. It is a strong voice with a powerful lower register to it but can have a higher, mellow tone with a childlike innocence to it when required. I have good RP for clear, straight and informative training purposes and natural colour and dramatic realism for character roles.
