I've been cast in a few short roles, most recently in a movie teaser as a fruit and veg guy being victim to a theft:
Easier to watch than explain. (only 2 minutes 40 long)

I shot a TV advert for Cast Iron radiators which featured me and my 'wife and child' around a manor house. The shoot all looked very promising but sadly due to funding never went out so I don't have this show reel which is a shame as it had been really well produced.

I was also cast in great TV commercial for cast iron radiators, working in a manor house with my 'wife' and a seven month old baby.

Modeling

Modeling experience

Part-time model - paid commercial work


I've modelled for a variety of shoots from fashion to car and bike reviews.
Harley Davidson, Audi, John Lewis, Ted Baker, Aldi, Getty Images, Wedding specialists and many more...

I have experience modelling for various shoots including weddings, stock photography for; office, sports & leisure, serious and fun. I'm happy to take on a broad array of requests and challenges.

Being from a creative background with photography experience myself am quick to grasp what is trying to be achieved and can convey the right impression without too much instruction required and great feedback from the photographers.
I'm not too precious about my look so am happy to clean shave, grow a beard or cut my hair to best suit what's required.

TV & Reality

Heat training for the Sahara
BBC Look East followed my training for a run across the Sahara. I was filmed and interviewed in various stages whilst training and also stationary summarising chats.

Idiots in India
I'm featuring in a production by Shine TV 'idiots in India' following the Dumball Rally as a group of us drive old bangers 2,000km+ across India. During this I was interviewed, followed by the crew and presented on the mike from the car whilst the crew followed filming from another vehicle.

ITV This Morning - Come Party With Me
I took part in a feature on ITV's This Morning to throw and judge the best garden party, it was a great experience working with the crew and making everything look the best for the cameras.
I pulled some strings to get X factor finalists Diva Fever and Britain's Got Talent Semi-finalists (Magic Act) to perform at my party (to win points and impress the guests). The day and the shoot was a huge success and I also attended the other parties too which was all on camera and a great experience.

Radio Cambridge, Heart FM, Radio Rutland
I've had several pre-recorded and live radio interviews following my story of running 156 miles across the Sahara. As well as an assortment of publications running my story.

I'm a motivational speaker and have spoken and co-presented alongside royalty at Buckingham Palace and St James' Palace for the DofE Gold Awards. I've also presented my talks at Mercedes Benz World and Cambridge Colleges as well as many schools and academies, I share stories and lessons from my endurance challenges around the world and have spoken to audiences of up to 300 teens, business people, property gurus.
I've presented in radio and TV in interviews for BBC Look East, Radio Cambs, Heart FM and several podcasts.
I find it easy to ad-lib and improvise when necessary and keep the conversation lively and engaging.
I'm confident in front of a camera or on stage and comfortable interacting with people from any background.
