I have stage acting experience from when I was younger as I appeared in a lot of locally produced shows and also took some lead roles in these. I also have some experience as an extra with TV shows having done some work previously with an agency before I moved to the USA with work. I was involved in school performances and also did drama workshops outside of school however once I got to college I did not have enough time to commit to shows anymore due to other commitments with football and martial arts. I have spent several years in the armed forces which included progressing through officer training and working with specialist units as well as training abroad. This has given me a lot of valuable life experience and skills which when I think about acting means I can bring a lot to certain roles with the experiences I have had both in situations and dealing with people. I have spent the past 5 years working abroad in the USA as an operations director and coaching football at various levels of the game.
