"I was born in Dublin, Ireland in the ‘60’s. The first 9 years of my life I spent in Ireland then my family re-located to London. My family were in the pub trade and I went to secondary school at Finchley High School, North Finchley, leaving there at 17 and returning home to Ireland, solo.

I worked in various jobs, catering, factory work, labouring the works!! In my early 20’s I met and married the wonderful Polly. We have two fantastic boys, Larry  and Kevin.

Acting was something I always wanted to try my hand at but never got around to, so when I was in my late 30’s I said to myself ‘it’s now or never’, and now it was. I took myself off to the Gaiety School of Acting in Dublin and signed up for an introduction to acting course. After the first class I was hooked. I continued training and went from class to class then found myself getting cast in low budget short films and features. Soon to follow came TV work and well funded projects, and things have been going from strength to strength.

Thanks for taking the time,
