Anglo/Irish Zimbabwean in LA. Renaissance man with an understanding of the interconnectivity of many disciplines - all are interdependent: without a script there’s nothing to produce/direct/design/act. Without any of those the script is just text.
I’m unusual as an actor/writer/director/editor/designer because I have experience in almost all areas of both filmmaking and live theatre (to varying degrees) including composing music and choreographing, so I tend to edit with the sensibilities of a musician and choreographer with a keen focus on the rhythm, tone, flow, pace, movement & the combination of all of these.
Employment and project experience
35 years of International performances as actor, dancer, singer, burlesque performer, comedian, physical theatre, director, writer (drama, comedy, musicals, cabaret), period plays - such as Restoration Comedies & Shakespeare.

Music composer & lyricist
MA in Choreography - Laban Centre (predominantly contemporary dance & movement for physical theatre pieces, but I have choreographed fights, musicals & dances within Shakespearean/period pieces).
