    Originally from Wigan (Lancashire) so can do a natural northern accent. My everyday speak is now standard RP having lived in London 30 years. Can also do General American (2 years studying GA).

    At 18/19/20 yrs old I studied part time at Italia Conti School plus private tuition.

    My first professional appearances:

    'Aladdin' panto, Grand Theatre Swansea, directed by John Chiilvers.

    Benjamin in 'Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat' - UK tour.

    Lamar in 'Godspell', Palace Theatre, Westcliff On Sea, directed by Christopher Dunham.

    Dennis in 'Murder At The Vicarage' Palace Theatre, Westcliff On Sea, directed by Christopher Dunham.

    Then my journey took a pleasant diversion when success came along as lead singer/musician/songwriter with 80's band Kajagoogoo.

    I co-wrote our worldwide hit 'Too Shy' (No’ 1 in UK/Europe/Asia/Australia, No'5 in USA).

    As a solo artist, I had another worldwide hit with movie-theme song 'Neverending Story'. As you can imagine, this kept me quite busy for a while and acting had to take a backseat ;-)

    In 2016 I rediscovered my love of acting and have been re-training at:

    The Actors Centre (Covent Garden)

    City Lit College (Covent Garden)

    The Actors Cafe (Herts)

    The Ascend Actors Group (West End)

    The Actors Door Studio (EC1)

    Met Film School - Ealing
