    About me

    I trained at Rose Bruford College on the respected APT course from 2014 -16 and then moved into professional work. Prior to this I saw a great deal of the real-life dramas people get themselves into, or fall victims of, through my previous career as a senior officer in the Metropolitan Police Service - at times quite humorous - at others, sadly, literally tragic. This has given me a fund of real life experience and emotion to tap into and bring to my acting.

    I have a strong authorative voice, natural "received pronunciation", military bearing and an aura of sophistication and gravitas - ideal material for casting as a judge, senior businessman, politician, news reader, military leader or priest - but have the versatility and drive to undertake a wider range of roles, too, and utilise my wide range of accents.
