    Additional Information

    Nothing phases me and I cope well with situations that arise out of the blue! While Cruise Director on the Marella Celebration earlier this year our itinerary was to cross the Atlantic from the Bahamas and continue the cruise through the Mediterranean for the rest of the season. However, as we neared Madeira we were told the island had closed its borders and we could not enter even though we had a passenger who was desperate for hospital treatment. Other ports began closing too and we were literally adrift without a home! Everyone had to step up to keep the passengers happy, from the chefs to the other onboard amenities, including entertainment. It was my responsibility to plan and schedule another eleven nights at sea as our ship eventually headed towards the UK. Quite a drama on the high seas! We arrived in Southampton two days before lockdown.

    About me

    I have been performing since the day dot and the last thirty-two years have been varied and educational. I was a member of a local Youth Theatre from the age of eight and performed at a variety of venues including the National Theatre in a production of 'The Exam' written by Andy Hamilton. I was mentioned in the Evening Standard for my portrayal as 'Chaz' when the reporter declared that casting agents should beat a path to my door, sadly no-one did! At the age of ten, I was also a member of the National Youth Music Theatre in 'Creation', I thoroughly enjoyed touring the UK which culminated in a performance at Canterbury Cathedral.

    At sixteen I attended Leeds College of Music but upon leaving instead of going down the usual route of Performing Arts Academies I began working in the tourist industry and spent many months away from home entertaining under tropical skies. Disneyland Paris, during Christmas and New Year, was magical too. From here I began working on cruise ships as part of the entertainment teams which I enjoyed very much until an injury made me rethink my direction as high intense dancing was too painful!

    I sidestepped and spent three years with a group called 'The Ragdolls'. We covered lots of venues from Gleneagles to Butlins, Annabel's in Mayfair, London to Cork Opera House. With them, I did lots of voiceovers covering introductions, PR, and corporate events. I am performing with them again now as well as holding down a day job working very long hours. When not working away I have also been a Supportive artist and been in productions such as 'George Gently', 'Coronation Street', 'Emmerdale', 'Peaky Blinders', and was lead in a reconstruction for a documentary called 'My Wife was Stabbed to Death by our Son.'

    Due to my love of travel I applied to become an Assistant Cruise Director and held that position with the Peel Entertainment Group for two years until, in 2019, I was promoted to Cruise Director. Sadly with the Corona Virus this ended in March of this year and since then, like many of my friends, I have had to find another job to tie me over until the work returns. I feel I have not finished my 'time' being a Cruise Director and as soon as I can I would like to resume the position and continue for at least another two years before looking towards the future and progressing further.

    I have a particular love for acting, which stems from my earlier days and playing at many venues across the country. I would like to return to this at some point as I have a passion for it.

    I enjoy new challenges and more than happy to add new achievements to my CV which I hope shows the variation of my talents. I can hold an audience with my own solo performances and as part of a group. I have hosted many game shows and entertainment events and enjoy the interaction of a live audience but can work alone and take direction.

    Acting experience

    Playing Mark Howe in a reconstruction for Crime Investigation. A young man who stabbed his mum in a frenzied attack. A variety of Supporting Artist Walk-ons. Stage productions; 'Fizzy' in Bugsy, 'Chaz' in Andy Hamilton's 'The Exam'. A number of other plays as a kid.
