    About me

    Was accepted by ALRA in 1987 and was heavily invested into acting but had to put it all on hold in 1989 to raise my family.

    In 1989 I trained as an aromatherapist and set up running and exhibiting alternative health festivals around the country and teaching meditation. Retrained as a counsellor in the late 90s following doing a BA (Hons) degree in social psychology, with an post graduate degree in business. I have spent the past 20 years in the field of addictions and mental health including working with children removed from the family home due to sexual abuse.

    With all my children now grown up and left home I now have the opportunity to return to my first love of acting but with the added benefit of 50 plus years of life experience. In order to keep myself sharp I have returned to training with The Actors Studio at Pinewood, London Actors Workshops, the London Meisner Company and the Baron Brown Studios in USA.

    Outside of acting I'm a keen biker and ride a 1700cc cruiser. I've travelled over most of the UK and Europe as well as doing Route 66 solo and a number of other US destinations. I also like my fishing, gym and Krav Maga, a military self-defence and fighting system developed for the Israel Defense Forces. As a juxtaposition I'm also an ordained clergy member of the church of spiritual humanism.
