I have just completed a commercial for Paddy Power (directed by Andrew Gaynord) and a short film with Kingston University where I play the cashier (a neighbourhood fence). I am currently filming a 6-episode web series (each episode 30-40 minutes) due to be released in April 2024. I am also booked as a principal in this year's immersive theatre production with Lapland UK for a 6-week run.
I have an agent for commercials (AK Agents) and am open to discussing opportunities directly for all parts, though my ideal type is "the sly and witty gent with a concealed agenda." However, the recent casting in the lead comedy role for the Paddy Power commercial shows another side of me.
I have written short fiction since my teens and am currently developing an urban fantasy novel (part of a trilogy) and a screenplay to accompany it. I have now completed three screenplays for short films and am working on another feature. The feature is now in active development with a view to start production in 2024. The comedy crime caper is in pre-production and the psychological thriller received a 7.9 overall score from a Shore Scripts shorts competition. I am also developing a pilot TV episode for this project.
I have run a YouTube channel on life coaching since August 2021. I write, produce and edit all the content on this channel and use DaVinci Resolve in the editing process.
I ran an event company for 12 years focusing on fantasy and themed productions and worked with English Heritage for 2 years on their immersive theatre Hallowe'en Horrors productions as an artistic director and actor, two national professional LARP organisations on their SFX crews for 4 years (including live improvisation), and my local council delivering edutainment to children for 1 year. My background includes management consulting, running my own web company and owning and running a group of restaurants. I am also listed in the International Who’s Who of Professionals 2001-2003.
