Biography / Credits

I am a professional actor working in film, theatre, television and corporate productions. I trained in a small London based drama school in the early Seventies, went on to train as a teacher, taught drama and worked as the Director of the Portsmouth Youth Theatre.

I  returned to professional acting some years ago.

I mix acting with writing and directing, cat sitting and trading in American Comics.

Nominated Best Actor at Screen Power Film Festival November 2021 for The Great Conjunction.
