"Gets so, nobody's story's true.
Not yours, not mine. But it's all we've got." First and Fiftieth
My writing - drama and fiction - covers many different characters and situations, ranging from the real to the fantastic, from the deeply serious to the slyly comic, from sensitive to offensive.
As a director of theatre, I am still learning my trade.
As an actor I perform best on film.
WRITER & DIRECTOR
Encolpius, Ascyltos and Giton are penniless young men footloose in the Roman Empire. With narrator Gaius Petronius as their guide and a cantankerous group of Actors who bring to life everyone they encounter, the trio find themselves at the heart of adventures of seduction, deception, love,
thievery, violence and more.

Meet the wealthy, self-obsessed and eccentric Bliss family; grande dame of the stage and mother Judith, novelist and father David, and their two children Sorel and Simon. Each has invited a guest to spend the weekend at their country house in rural England - and each has neglected to tell the others. Needless to say friction and hilarity ensue in this classic British comedy of manners.
Hay Fever was the third production I have directed for the Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group; the talented cast and crew created a
memorably frothy and funny production.
A young man seeks solitude. He thinks he has found it on a deserted beach until
he comes across a burning fire.
I was very pleased to be invited to play the enigmatic beachcomber, together with co-star Daniel Orejon. Writer/producer/director Ross
MacFarlane and music creator Malcolm MacFarlane have created a haunting short film. Watch it and look
out for his next work.
