About Me

I am married with three adult children. My playing age is around my mid to late fifties. I have a soft, clear well-modulated Scottish accent (a voice clip is available). I am bubbly and sociable. I live within easy access to Central London and I also have my own transport. I have excellent availability as my only work commitment is filming. I have experience in TV, Film, Commercials, Still Photography and Corporate Videos. This includes speaking and background roles. I am a member of Spotlight and Imdb credited. I believe life is for the living and I intend to work in this industry as long as I am physically capable. My family think I am obsessed and I think they might be right.
