Actor with 30 years film/ tv /and theatre experience teaches acting and voice

Methodology

Methodology is entirely dependent on individual's current skills and requirements. The core is create a strong base vocally, physically and mentally ( the imagination is key) and of course how to apply that to text and performance and for what medium.

Background

I have acted in over 30 feature film and television series, have run my own acting agency and written for
tv and film, played a leading role in West End and am also an award winning voice artist. I can focus on performance for any medium, but specialise in voice and acting for camera.
