    Additional Skills

    I have been a policeman and a company MD so I have first hand knowledge of these areas. I was fire arms trained in the police and also took the advanced driving test.

    My BBC engineering training means I am very comfortable with technology.

    Additional Information

    I have a good knowledge of the process of TV and film and this is an advantage in understanding the challenges faced by crew and director. I am very disciplined about behavior on set and find I can keep the continuity of a character well in the most arduous stop start process.

    About me

    Although I have been acting and working on stage since schooldays, my primary experience hasn't been in the acting field till a couple of years ago. I started doing business role play and realised that this was where I wanted to be. I have been working at building the portfolio ever since. I revel in performance of any kind although realism and comedy are the two genres I enjoy most. I am dedicated, highly motivated and have tireless enthusiasm to get the job done well. I have been told that I take direction well and I am happy to adapt to my environment and work at whatever level is called for be it full features or small doco crew.
