    About me

    I studied Drama at Newcastle College 1988, 89, 90, acting in a number of productions including The Crucible, Macbeth, Royal Hunt Of The Sun and Grease, as well as playing the lead in Habeas Corpus and Entertaining Mr Sloane. Uncertain of how best to forge a career as an actor and perhaps lacking the confidence afforded by maturity, I drifted out of acting in 1991, becoming an Army Officer and later a Disc Jockey (both of which required quite a lot of acting, ironically). Though the latter could sometimes be quite lucrative, neither provided anywhere near the same satisfaction or ignited anything like the passion in me. During a foray into stand up comedy in 2010, a chance encounter with a fellow actor and comedian led to my eventual stage return in "It's Complicated" (nominated for the Cambridge Footlights Harry Porter Prize) in London in August 2012.

    Since that time I have immersed myself in short film and television projects with a view to putting together a showreel each year. I am listed in Spotlight (View PIN **contact removed** I have a deep, resonant voice which carries with it an authority the development of which was essential in the work I have previously undertaken, both as an Army Officer (Major) and as a radio presenter. I bring an intense, physically commanding presence to my work and have the facility for pathos and comedy (between 2010 and 2012 I performed 50 stand up comedy gigs nationwide).

    I am pleased to have thus far lived a life of variety and challenge, but am happiest most of all to have "come home" (and that is exactly how it feels) to acting, and look forward to bringing the sum of who I am to audiences. I appeared in the critically acclaimed UK premier of Tennessee Williams' The Fat Man's Wife at Canal Cafe Theatre in 2014, and was recently nominated for an "Offie" - Off West End Award 2016 for Best Male, in Punchline Theatre Company's 2 Complicated.
