About me

I took up acting late in life when, in 2010, I decided to audition for a play at The Rose Theatre, Kingston, and, on being cast immediately wanted more.

Very soon other parts, as diverse as 'George Harrison' in a Beatles tribute play and 'Mr Marlow' in 'She Stoops to Conquer', soon followed and with an agent now on board roles in short films quickly followed together with my first appearance at The Camden Fringe. I played a lead character, ‘Tony Mirra’ in the major television series 'Mafias Greatest Hits' and took a leading role in the British Council funded 'Tea & Crumpets' a dramatic short film about the horrors of sex trafficking. This was shortly followed with an appearance on a TV game show in Japan as ‘The Exorcist’.

My first feature films were 'London Latino' and 'M.O.N.E.Y.' featuring Emmy Award winning actor Wil Johnson. Also cast by ‘Redzz’, the popular rap artist, as the lead in his million plus viewed video ‘The Prisoner’ closely followed by the horror film 'The Hunted’ which was launched at Cannes in 2013, where I played the crazy serial killer ‘Papa’. In the short film ‘In A Dream’, written and directed by the very talented guys who worked on the visual effects of Wachowski's 'Cloud Atlas’, I was cast as the 'TV Chat Show Host’.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of ‘Dr Who’ the BBC ran a huge Worldwide promotion and cast me as 'Tom Baker' when launched in October 2013, the year ending on another high note for me when playing 'Shamrayev' in Chekhov's 'The Seagull' on the London fringe theatre circuit.

Throughout 2014 the steady stream of work has continued the climax being cast as 'King Saul' in Hollywood director Timothy Chey's production of 'David and Goliath' and with further feature films already being planned for 2015 the future is looking bright.
