    Additional Information

    As a practicing Rastaman I have a very open-ended view of life. I love people and characters, mix easily with all sectors of society, races, types, religions, ages, etc.As a writer, journalist, director, poet, busker, etc I have a very rounded knowledge of performance.

    About me

    In a long and varied career in stage, tv, film I've played the widest variety of roles open to me - from junkie to community representative, from hired gun to respected elder, acclaimed actor,etc. i've play-acted since childhood, product of a carnivalesque culture and background.
