 Special Skills 

I am a former detective (Australian Federal Police), spending time in drug response, but later specialising as a forensic videographer. So, I know my way around police procedure, firearms, handcuffs, dialogue and of course, crime scenes and morgues.

I have a long background as a field first aid volunteer with St John Ambulance (nearly two decades) and have taught and practiced traumatic casualty simulation.

Much of my life has been behind cameras having started my career as a sound recordist and assistant cameraman at ATN seven, Sydney. 

I'm also competent in a range of accents particularly London, upper RP British, Irish, Russian,  standard American. Currently working on developing Scottish, Welsh, South African, German and a range of regional US dialects.
