I'm a professional stand-up comic (almost 20yrs), actor, writer & voice artist. Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, now based in the United Kingdom.

Prior to finding my calling in the world of entertainment I obtained my law degree from UNISA (University of South Africa) while I worked for the Department of Justice. Once I qualified I became a Public Prosecutor (to work off my study debts) and put some of the most vile, evil human beings behind bars. When I write about man's inhumanity to man, I know what I'm talking about because I've seen it first hand. From there I went into the legal financial world, but that's lame and boring so I'll end this backstory right here.

I've also written a short dark action thriller, titled "I KILLED TONIGHT" (it's available to download on here). The script most recently achieved a Stage32 "Double Recommended" and was included in the Stage32 Lookbook and has been requested by an executive at an award winning production company in Hollywood. It's also in the top 40% on Coverfly. It was also recently a Platinum Awards Winner at the Pinnacle Film Awards, an Award Winner at the Multi Dimension Independent Film Festival, Semi-Finalist at the Monthly Indie Shorts festival, Quarter Finalist at the Script Awards Los Angeles, and Official Selections at both the Chicago Script Awards & Filmdependence Screenplay Contest for Best Short Script. I have adapted this short script into a TV pilot screenplay, of the same name, which would make a very cool, dark short series (also available on here).

I have also written the pilot episode of my TV crime/thriller drama titled "PRISON INC" (it's available to download on here). It most recently placed as a SEMI-FINALIST at the 26th Annual Fade In Awards First 10 Pages Competition.

My 1 pager screenplay, HITCH (available on here), made the top 20% of the Killer Shorts Horror Shorts Screenplay Competition and is in the top 36% on Coverfly. This 1 pager screenplay has been adapted into a full length horror screenplay under the same name. It is also available upon request.

I have also written a novel titled "HORN" which is available upon request.

If anyone wants to read the novel, or to chat about any of my screenplays do not hesitate to drop me a message.
