Over 50 years I have been involved in hundreds of plays as actor, playwright or director. I toured the UK & Europe many times. I have presented plays - my own work & others - at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival & on London's Fringe Theatre circuit. I have worked on British radio and TV: the BBC, CITV, Anglia TV amongst others.
Now resident in Philadelphia, I have worked with some of our finest companies: Peoples Light, The Arden, the Philadelphia Dramatists' Center, Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium, the Philadelphia Artists' Collective (PAC) & Egopo Classic Theatre and many more. I was proud to be a 2017 Barrymore winner as part of Egopo's multiple-nominated 'The Seagull'. In 2018 I appeared in the 6 month 'LYDIE BREEZE' trilogy by Pulitzer finalist, Oscar nominee, Tony, Olivier, and Obie Award-winner playwright John Guare.
I am currently a Board member of the PDC, a community of playwrights, collaborating artists & audience members based in Philadelphia PA. www.fb.com/Philadelphia.Dramatists.Center.PDC
