Born 1969 in Paisley to mum, dad, bro, sis and Chihuahua called Bambi. Studied music at Perth Rock College in 1988, spent years and years as a DJ, sobered up in 2001 and now an actor type.
TV credits include The Karen Dunbar Show, Almost Angelic, Chewin’ The Fat, Only an Excuse, Offside and hundreds of other stuff. Specialise in animation voices – voiced movies like Rogue Farm, Psychotica (with Simon Pegg, Helen Baxendale and Jack Davenport) and The Three Musketeers. Done loads of radio and theatre too. About to star as Danny McGlone in the National Theatre of Scotland’s production of Tutti Frutti. Music anorak, singing, playing guitar and piano.
Vocal session work includes Mylo’s Destroy Rock and Roll album (vocals for track one – Valley of the Dolls, and for the single version of track five – In My Arms.) Spent three years in legendary Scottish band Horse, and has also worked with singer/songwriter diva Carol Laula and worked on the Runrig album “In search of angels.” Has worked extensively, to the point of insanity, over the past twelve years with Bafta winning and Ivor Novello nominated composer Paul Leonard Morgan, at Rage Music.
Dabble with creating my own music, some examples you can hear above. My speciality is multi track vocals a la Brian Wilson/Kirsty MacColl – no job too small. Specialise in theme tunes. Dangerously obsessed with the movie The Sound of Music. I live in the middle of nowhere, in a cottage in Ayrshire with two cats and a ghost.
