My "Acting Career" I guess started the 1st time I set foot on stage as a drummer, which was at around the age of 10, playing a couple of numbers in my older brother's band.


Any form of entertainment is to some degree, acting and I believe my early start as a performer set me up for future modelling and acting.


My first real "acting", apart from the obvious Plays at Secondary School, was working as an International Model in Singapore in the early 1980's. This period of my performing life included Television Commercials, Magazine Fashion Shoots, Newspaper Advertisements, Touring Fashion and Dance Shows and Catwalk Shows for French and other International Fashion Houses. 

During this period I also gained qualifications through IMP International Modelling School.


My acting career was put on hold for quite some time as I pursued my Business Career but music was always there and throughout my life I have played continually in many bands but more about that to the right of this page.


In the early 2000's I took up acting again and gained extras parts in many Australian Television shows and a Cast part in "Underbelly - The Man Who Got Away". I have appeared in Australian Television Commercials and during a 2 year stint working in Vietnam I appeared in Television Commercials, a Television War Series, had a Major French Speaking Role in a War Movie and appeared in various Tourism Videos. I retired from Acting in 2021.
