About me:

I am a 46-56 year old south-east London based actor with recent screen and stage credits. I have been an actor since 1989 and combine this with teaching acting courses and classes in the Meisner Technique for actors both here and abroad. I enjoy swimming, yoga, Tai Chi and reading. I spent 6 years living in Italy in the 1990s. I am currently in pre-production for the role of the lawyer Charles Spruce in the low budget feature directed by Rob Ryan and produced by Henry Rossi for Deuce Films.
