Skills/Previous Experience:

I can just about ride a horse, I have been a both a teacher and police officer, At one time I worked in BBC local radio (Nottingham, Leeds, Durham) doing voiceover, short programmes, anchor and continuity work, and other Station Assistant roles. Now retired.

I have been in a range of feature film roles as an SA, some with lines, TV dramas, and number of short films including lead roles.
I pride myself on having a professional approach to this work, being reliable and punctual, and not being a 'meerkat'. While I have met and got on well with a number principals, I never approach and bother them, and only engage if approached.

Personal Summary:

I am confident, well spoken, literate. I have been told I look "distinguished". I have been doing acting work for a few years now and as I had done no acting since schooldays, this has opened a new world to me and I enjoy it.
