About me:

Hi, Im an enthusiastic 45 year old enjoying my working experiences in all that I do, I would love to get a supporting role in television and film and show my performance skills. I am originally from Yorkshire and have been based permanently in London since 2003. I have now become SAG/AFTRA Eligible and continue to seek opportunities worldwide. I work on features when I am not auditioning as a double for lead cast members, this is where I hone in on training and master my craft with already established working professionals.
