    My interests

    Acting experience

    I've trained in acting and worked with various film producers including ITV, ITN and Kudos Productions.

    I'm often cast as a GP/doctor, policeman or CID; some of these castings have included dialogue. Further on screen examples include being featured in business corporation videos, interviewed on camera and driven vehicles through London taking 2 way radio direction whilst being filmed from camera cars for television adverts. I've also been a stunt double, driving through open London high streets at high speed for emergency scenes. I've been an actor in a number of films and television commercials and a body double for Anthony McPartlin, Declan Donnelly (Ant & Dec) and a number of times for Tim Roth.

    As a result, I'm very comfortable on camera and on sets. When standing in, I'm in the midst of it. Naturally I have to follow every detail of the principal actor, staying alert and focused listening to the directors calls. I've also presented radio shows. I love working in the TV film industry; I don't consider it a job but part of my life.

    Specific Skills

    I can ski all types of snow pistes. I have on a number occasions driven cars through London for films and dramas, taking 2 way radio direction, whilst being filmed from camera cars.

    Interesting Past Experiences

    Interesting... On oneoccasion a pair of USA militry boots were delivered as an 8 but USA sizes are one size smaller meaning they were a 7! In order to get the take for the scene I managed to get them on but I thought my toes would drop off during the day with the lack of circulation!

    Thank you for reading and I hope that I'm able to offer you something that your looking for.

    About me

    About Me

    After leaving school,I trained at the Drama academy in London with a LAMDA graduation. I've worked as a presenter in Radio for 10 years and now mainly television and film productions. I experienced my first on camera acting work filming in short films and music video's. Whilst training I worked on market stalls around London often having to get up at the crack of dawn!

    In my mid twenties to keep the bills paid I started developing property and although made a successful living from it, by the mid 2000's I was picking up small acting parts and featured in property documentaries for channel 4.

    I further trained in 2015 & since then have had various scripted parts. I live in South Hertfordshire near to a number of well known studios and an easy 35 minutes tube access to central London. I hold a full UK driving licence & an up to date UK passport. Naturally, I'm professional in everything I do and I've a great reputation for being reliable and dedicated. I'm normally one of the first to arrive on a set so I can get a good feel of the surroundings, zone in and meet the crew before the actual call time.
