About Me

Threw myself into acting in my 40 while/after working in journalism, lecturing, training. Found I was fast at learning lines and devising or picking up on ideas, devising, and working round technical constraints on stage or set. Highly adaptable, responsive t drection and fellow actors. Grounded in real world - first job during school was clerk in betting shops in North Manchester, first job after university shifting spare parts in warehouse of Birmingham bus factory. Last non-acting full-time job was communications manager in a German investment bank. These adn other life experiences are all grist to my work as a character actor, from Newcastle lorry driver to New York bar owner.
