    Additional Information

    As an ex-serviceman in the United States Air Force, I have received the experience necessary to be able to adapt and overcome any scenario. Little did I know this would prepare me for a traumatic injury leading to me losing my leg in 2005. After my accident, I realised I could not proceed with the existing company I had been successfully running for over 10 years and I needed a new profession. This is when I realised I could put the acting experience I learned in college to good use. Since 2008 I have been a professional actor, appearing in both TV and film as well as on stage in the West End in London. I also trained as a trauma casualty actor and have worked for other companies to help train the medical professionals, both in the military and private sector for many years.

    About me

    I am a mature and experienced actor. Having trained in Los Angeles for 2 years and performing in theatre and television, this prepared me for my move to the UK in 2007. Since then, I have used my training, skills and passion as an actor to entertain people as well as benefit and develop others in the teaching arena. I possess excellent communication skills and am able to present to and capture an audience. One of my strengths is in improvisation, especially once I immerse myself into a character. I understand the importance of professionalism and punctuality. I may not take myself serious at times, but I always take my job serious.
