I have put my voice talents to work in shows such Channel 4 Sven, The Coach, The cash and his lovers where i took the title role and also Blaired Vision where i provided the voices for many British politicians and George bush.

    I have done numerous theatre roles, such as The extremely popular London Westend show The 39 Steps.

    I have also starred in two short films called Is it me and Today both directed by Robert Reina.
