    Additional Skills

    I've worked as a freelance journalist for both the BBC World Service, local radio and many magazine titles. I've also worked for the FCO (Foreign & Commonwealth Office) during which time, I played a small part in bringing the two communities in Northern Ireland together in the years after the Good Friday Agreement. My work has also taken me to Bosnian refugee camps and South African townships.

    I like to play squash, tennis and football, swim, cycle and run. I also practise yoga, can ski, play golf, ice skate, ride a horse, cook and drive. I have some training in karate.

    Additional Information

    I speak good German and can also converse in Swedish and French.

    About me

    My Instagram page gives a flavour of projects I've worked on.


    My spotlight page: www.spotlight.com/interactive/cv/ **contact removed** Born and bred in London, I originally trained as an actor in Hackney while freelancing as a print and radio broadcast journalist. Since 2016, I have been able to focus on developing my acting career and have had a wide span of jobs taking in TV, film, stage, commercials (in swimming trunks, as a boxing ref, as a mechanic, as a kiosk owner), music videos and a games app ad. In 2021, my avatar will appear as the lead military antagonist in an upcoming sequel to a a cult science fiction video game produced by THQ Nordic.

    My TV work has included parts on BBC 1, Channel 5, the Crime & Investigation Channel and the History Channel. I've just shot several scenes as a gangster (Anthony) in an Indian action thriller feature film called JAGAME THANDHIRAM which was directed by renowned Tamil director Karthik Subbaraj and stars James Cosmo and several well-known Indian actors. It is being released in 2021, Covid-permitting.

    I also recently shot a Star Wars fan film in Iceland in which I play the lead antagonist. It will also be released in 2021. I also have a small part in a black comedy feature film. This too will be released in 2021.

    In 2020, I was invited to join award-winning Actors Apparel as one of their in-house team actors to work with their clients on bespoke scenes for high quality professional showreels.
