He was encouraged by his Apprentice Supervisor who was a member of the Alvechurch Amateur Dramatic Society and began his career in a production in which surprisingly he played the part of a policeman. From there he applied and gained entry to drama school.

His latest, most popular role was that of Bob in the Channel 4 TV series Teachers but he has also appeared in many TV programmes over the last few decades such as Coronation StreetJuliet BravoMidsomer Murders and the like.
