  • Education

    1980University of Leeds
    1980Graduated from University and spent time in state sponsored bohemia. Wandered into small scale theatre via my musical/arranging skills and then, inevitably, someone fell ill on the night and I took my first steps on an acting stage. More roles followed...

    Additional Skills

    Good Jazz guitar player.

    Strong singer

    Good at accents.

    Additional Information

    Very fit and active 66 year old hoping to add some Film and TV work to my skill set. At the moment gaining much valuable film experience via small scale and student films.

    Spent most of my life on a stage of some sort, rep, small scale touring and TIE. Now focussed on TV and Film work.

    I have a musicians ear for accents and vocal styles which I can quickly assimilate, also, because of a lurid fascination with the behaviours of the upper middle classes, I can belie my quotidian upbringing and adopt a very high status persona at the drop of a hat. Not particularly bothered about the dosh (got enough) but more in pursuing the craft of acting.

    About me

    I'm a 'returning' actor who put his theatrical career on hold for a number of years in order to to earn money and raise a family, and now, finally, I can find the time to reinvigorate my passion for acting.

    1980 - 1995 Professional Actor working in rep and small scale theatre. Work at Glasgow Citizens, Leeds Playhouse, York theatre Royal, Sheffield Crucible, M6 Theatre, Major Rd Theatre, Interplay Theatre.

    1995 - 2005 Trained and worked as Counsellor/Therapist whilst raising a family.

    2005 - 2017 Created Shabang Theatre and built a succesful theatre company working with children and adults with a learning disability.

    2017 'officially" retired, but no intention of retiring.

    2017 onwards - seeking good quality work in TV, Radio, Film etc.
