Formerly a teacher in English and drama (mostly to young people.) I found my love of theatre acting again with the Actors' Temple in London to allow myself to be free.
I have an untrained singing range from Tenor to Mezzo-Soprano and sing in a Community A Cappella choir in my home town. This is purely for enjoyment but am happy to sing on stage or on set.
I am a UK qualified athletics coach for all track and field events, however, I have found a passion for javelin and help kids from age 9 plus to improve.
A short film called To Dust - a photographic, art film which was film in early December on the beautiful Isle of Skye in Scotland. was shown in Final Short Film round, Cannes 2016. My cover photo depicts Loch Fada near Portree early morning, before sunrise.
This is what I love about this work; you venture to places where you have never been and work with people whom you've never met; make connections and friendships.
