I have had many fantastic and amazing experiences when being selected to appear on various types of TV shows - such as doing battle on game shows (Question Jury,Getaway car, weakest link, countdown, Breakaway, Tipping point) to talk shows (Now who's talking BBC, Morgan Spurlocks new Britannia) to reality TV (coach trip, Come Dine) to character roles (doorman on Lookalikes)

All which i have enjoyed immensely and have brought their own set of challenges.

I also act on stage in the comedy world as a bizarre picture, prop and character stand up comedian in the London area since autumn 2011.
