Acting

My first professional theatre job, in 1991, was playing Mozart with the English String Orchestra. My second was devised multi-media work. Since then, my career has divided pretty neatly between the classical and the (in one way or another) alternative. Twenty years and fifty-odd shows later, I'm not going to bore you with every detail, but if you want any of them, a long list and my showreel is below -

  Radio/Voice My first professional radio experience was with the BBC Radio Rep company (1994-5), where I was lucky enough to take part in productions of Len Deighton's Bomber, Sartre's Roads To Freedom trilogy, Brecht's Life of Galileo, Verne's Journey to The Centre of The Earth and episodes of Sherlock Holmes and Miss Marple among many others. Since then, I have been back many times, most recently for productions of The Duchess of Malfi and the pilot series of Showstopper!, as well as recording Doctor Who adventures for Big Finish and audio books for Naxos.
