I have done many radio commercials playing the man in the street, train driver, gas man, truck driver as well as the voice of a homeless man down on his luck.

I did the narration voice in Irish for the T.V. Documentary based on the life of "Harry Clarke", stain-glass window artist. Camel Productions were the production company

I trained with Tim Mc Donell at the Actors' Studio in Dublin for 2 years 2002-2004.
I was a full-time student at "The Gaiety School Of Acting" Dublin for 2 years from 1996-1998 following 1 year part time course there from 1995-1996.

Before that I graduated from St. Patrick's College of Education, Drumcondra, Dublin 9. with a Bachelor Of Education Degree in 1986 permitting me to teach in Irish Primary Schools.

After 8 years full time teaching, I transitioned to the world of English language teaching allowing me to continue my development as an actor and voiceover artist. I worked with Stuart Pearce on a voice workshop and worked on accents independently.
