I have had over 20 years experience in musical theatre playing numerous roles, the last two being "The Full Monty" in 2007 and again in 2009. The original production was Levin Performing Arts Society's most successful show and the second time I played the lead role of 'Jerry'. Awesome fun and exposure! (excuse the pun).
Recently I was the lead actor in a 48 hour film challenge movie based in Auckland, playing a detective in the Sci-Fi fantasy "The Clonix Orb".

I am seeking to further my singing career as a lounge singer and perhaps performing as a soloist or duets in Cabaret, performing at Corporate functions, Restaurants, Weddings, Birthdays and Cruise Ships to name a few. I take pride in my professional presentation as a singer and I have a versatile Rock 'n Roll voice, but am also highly suited to soulfull crooning and heartfelt ballads.
Lately I have been performing as a Dine & Dance entertainer in clubs etc, specialising in singing all those rare hits of yesteryear that no one else is singing now.

TV & Reality

I appeared on Tv's "Stars in their Eyes" in 2009 performing Jon Bon Jovi's "Wanted, Dead or Alive". It was a great experience doing something considered to be 'risky' and I placed a close second in my heat. This gave me good exposure on national, prime time television for my future performing opportunities.
