Additional Details: 

Shaved head but can grow out to grey hair (widows peak and balding!) and beard quickly. Appearance can vary from thug to businessman. Age range from 45-65.

Very experienced at training actors, dancers, singers, etc. to do fight scenes and basic falls for films, TV shows, plays, ballet and opera.

I have performed for over 70 live shows including fire stunts pre-show for Kiss at the Rock 2 Wellington concert, assisted Adrian Paul (Highlander TV series) with a charity sword fighting workshop, sword fighting workshop for a Lord of the Rings tour group led by actress Patrica Tallman (Babylon 5), western themed stunt shows at Auckland's Museum of Transport & Technology, plus stunts and fight choreography for Royal New Zealand Ballet, NZ Opera, Summer Shakespeare, etc.

Have also run over 80 stage combat workshops (medieval sword, sword & shield, staff, rapier & dagger, found & improvised weapons, gun disarms, unarmed stage combat & stunt fighting, etc.). 

Large collection of prop weapons (daggers, knives, swords, crowbars, hammers, sledgehammers, axes, etc.) for hire to stage productions, live shows, short films, low budget films, etc.

Circus and other skills include a variety of odd stuff: juggling, diabolo, old school skateboarding tricks, bull whip, pole climbing, building free climbing, standing on top of a moving bicycle, rola bola, etc.
