    About me

    I have retired from a corporate position in Marketing & Advertising of the Aviation industry after a career spanning 35 years.I am lucky enough to have travelled all over the world. As a creative individual, my interest was in Advertising before I entered the world of Aviation. I have therefore taken modelling/acting as my part time career and hobby.I am 67 of age years of age now but could pass of as 55.I am a British Asian-Indian but with an olive skin colour and could suit roles which, apart from South Asian, would require Mediterranean/Middle Eastern / Hispanic - South American looks as well.
