About me

I have been involved in Performing Arts for many years, initially inspired by seeing Willy Russell's West End Performance of Blood Brothers. I attended initial Training at Norwich's Theatre Royal (The Garage) and, further inspired by my creative teacher at the Garage, pursued my aspirations of acting and coaching drama. Progressing through individual specialist courses in London and the South East and then into C.C.A.T.S Drama College in Essex I now hold professional accreditation as both Actor & teacher, currently working toward my Licentiate Certification in Speech & Drama (FTCL) from the Trinity Guildhall School of Music & Drama. With agency representation for Supporting Artiste (SA) & featured acting roles within Theatre, TV / Movie & commercial industries, and acquaintances at the London Film School call for "short film" production roles, (often sponsored by the British Film Foundation).
I have appeared in many TV commercials & popular Soaps / Dramas such as "Eastenders" - where I am a regular SA face, & "The Bill", "Londons Burning, and "The Midsomer Murders" as well as new Productions of "Law & Order" (with Bradley Walsh), "Spooks" and "Missing" (Pauline Quirke), "The Hustle", "Todd Margaret", "Miranda", "The Stephen K Amos Show", "Victoria Wood" and "Holby" . Mainstream larger productions have included "Hope & Glory" (Lenny Henry as an ambitious Headteacher), "Sleepyhead" & movies such as "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", "The Infidel" (with Omid Djarlili), "Maybe Baby" (directed by Ben Elton), "Sleepy Hollow" (with Johnny Depp.), 2009 Science Fiction movie "Franklyn", British Comedy "Reuniting the Rubins" (Timothy Spall, James Callis and Honor Blackman), "I Anna" (Gabriel Byrne), and I am currently appearing in Government Alcohol awareness campaign "Know your Limits" running throughout 2012/13.
I was a member of "Angel in Pockets Productions" (A professional, Multi-media production company based in Essex) where I debuted in an original drama "Dead Cargo" as TV/News anchorman, Malcolm Headley.
A drama teacher at Eastwood Theatre School / Kings performing Arts College in in Southend, I teach Trinity Guildhall Curriculum to the Gifted and Talented students in Performing Arts (Drama).
I am a proud Partner and Principal of The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts across x2 locations in Essex (Chelmsford, Brentwood) mentoring many aspects of acting and performance, creating bespoke workshops and having co-produced several large shows (Rocky Horror show, Grease, Carwash)

With enhanced CRB registration spanning many years I have also recently applied as professional Chaperone for young professional performers around the UK.
