    About me

    I'm a late starter in the acting profession having spent most of my career as a creative director working behind the camera so I consider myself fully experienced as far as the technicalities of performance are concerned.

    In my childhood/teenage years I was heavily involved in performance (impro, drama, light opera), and to my regret turning down an offer by Hammer films in the early 70's in favour of a more stable career in commercial art.

    Throughout my life I've been likened to Donald Sutherland. Can't see the likeness myself but to many, many people I'm a doppelganger. (He's even been confused for me!).

    So here I am at 62 yrs old reawakening my love for this profession. I've had two years training so far and have received distinctions in Physical Theatre, Acting for camera, Heightened speech and Performance.

    I'm about to start further professional training at the Poor School in October 2013.
