In the beginning....

Okay so this is a blog......apparently.....not that I have the faintest idea what to do or say in this.  So I guess I will start with some random rubbish about me.....sorry about that!

So I have been messing around on stage and film for the last 20 odd years and have always wanted to be a professional actor on stage, TV and film. (I'm not fussy!)  Having the sensible family that I have (this isn't a complaint...I love my family!) they always thought that I was a lot better off getting a 'proper job' so at the age of 17 I joined the Royal Navy as a weapons engineer...5 years later (pretty much hating every minute of my short career!) I managed to get out of the Navy.  Even during my time in the Navy I still wanted to act and after several years of performing down in Portsmouth my passion never disappeared and in fact got stronger and stronger with every show that i did.  I then moved up to Norwich (its cheaper than London don't you know!) again for a 'proper job'.  Luckily up in Norwich I managed to get involved with the Maddermarket Theatre and met an amazing bunch of people.  While performing there for almost 3 years the passion has got so strong there is no longer an excuse to ignore it anymore.  So while still working full time I spend my evenings and weekend trying to pursue my dream while selling coffee (more on both of those another time).

Well I guess that very (very) briefly explains what / who I am trying to become and really this blog will I'm sure end up almost being a diary of my triumphs (hopefully!) and falls (more than likely!).  So if you want to laugh at my failures or fancy coming along for the ride then follow my blog!  Feel free to have a look at my website and add any random insults or comments to my blog.
