2020Big Dipper starring Nathan Lea and Steve Connolly, was hilarious. Their fantastic chemistry on stage was apparent in every scene.

2020...working perfectly opposite Steve Connolly's rather intimidatingly blunt and uninhibited Benny.

    About me

    I am a UK based actor who made the change later in life to follow the passion that I had at a younger age for acting, both in film and theatre. I have spent the past thirty years following a career path that took in both the manufacturing industry, the legal profession and also law enforcement but have now changed career completely to allow me more time to pursue my career as a professional actor.

    My character age range is late thirties to late forties and I have played a number of characters, including a father and husband as well as authority figures but have recently changed my casting type to villain and thug characters.

    I have also taken the opportunity to improve my acting skills and regularly attend courses and workshops and am a member of the acclaimed playwright Jim Cartwright's drama studiio.

    I bring enthusiasm and flexibility as well as professionalism. If I could take just one thing from my previous career it is punctuality. I will always be there on time and ready to work as well as work tirelessly when doing that work to bring about the best product possible.
