About me

I am a dynamic, creative and totally reliable performer, with a wide range of singing experience, as well as both screen and stage acting. I have an MA in Modern Drama from the University of London and a postgraduate Vocal Studies qualification from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Previously I have combined performing with part time drama and Acting teaching and coaching, but now I am working entirely freelance as a performer. I have very wide experience of audio recording, which means that I am completely familiar with the realities of a recording schedule; the need for discipline, patience, getting things right first time or persevering until they are right! I also have a wide range of screen experience; Lead Actor in short films, such as 'Thirsty are the Damned', Featured Actor in commercials (eg a gym/fitness ad for SixPad), as well as Supporting Artist and Walk - On experience in TV commercials, films and TV drama - for example, as a member of the jury in the recent ITV recreation of the Hillsborough inquest and as a market stall holder in Emmerdale. I have several credits on my IMDb profile. I am a member of a Murder Mystery ensemble, which proves that I can create strong characters, establish rapport with an audience and fellow-performers, and improvise. As a concert singer I have been the soloist in countless oratorio and other classical performances, eg 'The St Matthew Passion', all the Haydn and Mozart masses, Buxtehude 'Membra Jesu Nostri', and many Early Opera performances, especially Handel eg Galatea in 'Acis and Galatea'. I am both highly professional and very creative and have had very strong feedback on my TV and film work, with particular commendation on how well I prepare and take direction. I am a very young 59, but have a usual playing age of late 40s. I am in very good shape and with a strong personal style - if you are looking for someone confident and classy, with a clear, warm speaking voice, young in style and appearance, who looks good on camera, then look no further!
