    My interests

    Many and various - the arts, performing arts, science & technology, politics, human rights, the planet. I am interested in how things work and what things mean. I'm handy - I fix broken things and I make new things.

    Television experience

    I acted in a reconstruction for and BBC1 documentary.

    Modelling experience

    3 unpaid student shoots over the years (one of those students in now head of fashion at the RCA!)

    Specific Skills

    Experienced professional film-maker & broadcast editor.

    As an ex-Army cadet, I can march properly and handle weapons.

    Experienced singer & musician playing in bands (lead singer/guitar/keys/bass/drums)

    Experienced semi-pro tenor choral & close harmony singer in various choirs (Albert Hall, St Martin-in-the-fields)

    Dancing Experience

    I recently danced as I sang in the cabaret section of 'Woyzeck' at Theatro Technis, London.

    Singing Experience

    I'm an experienced performer having played in bands for decades - as a singer, guitarist, bassist, keyboard player & drummer.

    Experienced tenor choral singer in my local church choir, Barts Choir, Barts Chamber choir, Vox Holloway, Christchurch Jazz Singers, Libra choir, performing in venues including the V&A Museum, St Martin-in-the-fields and the Royal Albert Hall.

    I also produce The Speakeasy in North London - an annual community cabaret/singalong/variety show where I lead the band for singalongs & music performances as the singer - across multiple genres.

    I am currently writing, performing & recording as a singer-songwriter.

    Additional Information

    My previous career was as a broadcast TV video editor and continue to pursue music production as a singer-songwriter & occasional film-making, so have a good understanding of lighting, staging, music production & direction.

    About me

    I am seeking ambitious, challenging acting roles. In 2020 I acted in, or did voiceover for, 15 productions. I'm an experienced performer who alongside film & theatre acting, produce and compere/sing at a North London cabaret annually. I've also played in bands for many years and am an experienced choral tenor & close harmony singer.
