    Additional Information

    I am an athletic build and can perform a little bit of Michael Jackson style dance moves, MC Hammer style dancing as well as bhangra and Bollywood dances and singing.

    I have taken karate, boxing, swimming and fencing lessons and should the need arise, am able to perform in these sequences. I also enjoy competitively playing badminton.

    I also enjoy cooking and flipping pancakes, can chop onions, cucumbers etc at speed. I can sharpen a knife at speed and also work as a butcher with lamb and chicken.

    About me

    A creative actor and crowd pleaser and love getting people engaged. I often tend to improvise where appropriate based on the mood of the audience. I have been involved in panto for Children in Need for the BBC, as well as amateur theatre, for Xmas. I am a practising barrister, a radio presenter and singer! I sing Bollywood style and am rehearsing Nina Simone's 'Feeling Good' as performed by Michael Buble though with my own Bollywood-esque twist! I am also writing lyrics too.

    In my acting I deliver serious Bollywood villainous roles, the hero and indeed the comedy side-kick. I've brought my unique style to some brilliant projects, from local charity work to national events. I'm now looking to build on this experience, and have a particular interest in performing in commercials, theatre, presentations, TV as well as films.
