After four years in the HTV Television workshop I got my first professional break playing Gaston in a touring production of “Beauty and the Beast”. Other stage work includes Fagin in “Oliver Twist”, John in “Caught in the Net”, Constantine in “A day in Hollywood/ A night in the Ukraine” and Dame Trott in “Jack and the Beanstalk”.

After this I landed the official role of Victorian Engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel for the ss. Great Britain Trust in Bristol. This led to five years work between 2006 and 2011 covering over five hundred days appearing as Mr. Brunel in character at the ship and all over the United Kingdom. In this time I have also appeared in numerous television shows such as Dr. Who, Torchwood, Skins, Being Human and many short films in featured roles.

I have also become a regular feature on BBC Radio Bristol adding a comic slant with my comments on the more light hearted stories in national and international news.

I have also written and performed in two one-man shows. The first was about Oscar Wilde that I performed at the International Dublin Theatre festival in May 2010 and the other was a Cabaret show performing as Noel Coward in a celebration of his songs and wit performed throughout southern England at numerous festivals and events.
