    About me

    I acted in Am dram as a teenager but when it came to work decided to be the real person I’d seen on the screen so often, so I became a police officer and met and worked with all the real life characters. I specialised as a firearms officer and then as a detective and a hostage negotiator. After 31 years I retired and returned to wanting to act.

    I also play guitar in bands, and spend a disproportionate time doing genealogy for my own family and others.

    I am hoping to find roles in which I can draw upon my myriad of life experience and exposure to so many kinds of real life characters and bring to life the imagination of the writer.

    Acting experience

    I have acted in several small budget short films, and a theatre performance in The Cockpit theatre London.

    I have attended the 12 week London Actors Workshop acting for film and Tv, and also the 5 week London Actors Workshop advanced course. please message me for my showreel.
