Employment History & Experience

Performing with the Scottish Monologue Theatre, having a host of disguises-in-character positions, one must rely on accent and make-up contributions, as much as , in order to aim for authenticity.

As a Performing Poet with the Poets Press initiative a reliable sense of humour is always sought and safely served to suit.

With a trained voice, I have been fortunate to have been employed as a chorus member with Scottish Opera, and have recently recorded a CD of crooner-type favourites for fund raising purposes.

All in all, always willing to serve and entertain as and when required.

To quote the bard himself (Shakespeare, that is), "being your slave, what should I do but tend, upon the services and needs you require, I have no precious time at all to spend,nor services to do til you require..."
