Actor, Model

Brief History; Born in Scotland. Merchant Navy Officer, 10 years Owned a health club 2 years. became an auctioneer- 14 years. Moved to New Zealand and now own and operate 2 motels and a luxury lodge. While in UK did some presenting for the BBC. I was the presenter for the first 5 shows made in a series called "Flog It". I am now involved with the local am-dram group here in Paihia. I am very quick witted (you have to be as an auctioneer) and I can talk about anything. I am very keen to do acting and my passion is to be a presenter- I love to be in front of a crowd ! I am 51 but look much younger and still think I am 29. I do have an accent (Scottish) but not too strong.. unless you want it to be...Brave Heart? Give me a microphone and point a camera at me and I'm off into my own world!
