    About me

    I am 54 years old. I retired from policing in 2018, i was a detective, a trainer and many other roles besides. Before that I was an engineer. I am now a business development officer for a USA tech start up and a director of a film and video production company.

    I enjoy being creative and write as well as act, I have played in amateur rock and metal bands and enjoy shouting - loudly! I enjoy playing live when I can fit that into my life.

    I have a legal qualifications and a masters degree in applied human rights. I recently enjoyed a year at university and enjoy travelling, as far as possible!

    I have plenty of time on my hands to act, and enjoy all types of rolls from lead to bit part its fun being there! I am looking for challenging rolls, I enjoy the darker characters and play them well, also any authority figure and anything that's edgy, problematic or otherwise interesting I will consider. I can fulfil roles in the 40 plus age range, I am physically fit and in the past played rugby league until the age of 35. I was a qualified coach during that period.

    I have the opportunity to take on any type of work, and would like to have a truly immersive experience and become a better actor while helping to produce quality screen work. Iyt is important to me that the roles I play have some weight, are exciting and stretch my talent, I want to be a better actor.

    Acting experience

    I have worked for the Bradford Film Academy, acting in a number of shorts and have been involved with new technology, filming a promotional video for 360 degree filming.
