    About me

    I have been acting for nearly 30 years, mainly in the theatre, but I have also spent some periods filming for TV and film. In the past, I have used my acting skills to also branch into presenting/interviewing, voice overs, role-playing and murder mysteries. I would now like to build on this previous experience and take on new challenges in this area.
