About Me

About Me

I emigrated to England at the age of 18 and having Graduated as a Professional Performer in Musical Theatre as a Dancer and Actor, I moved to London to start auditioning for West End productions. My debut as a Principal Dancer and singer was in Evita in London`s West End and continued working for many years moving from one show to another, including Miss Saigon, Mutiny!, Budgie, Showboat and A Chorus Line among others. My TV debut was when achieving the role of Franco Pedretti with BBC and followed other roles with other TV stations across the UK. In 1995 I decided to go my home country and started my own Theatre Company in Musical Theatre. Due to its success, the company branched out by introducing the Theatre Arts School and The Malta Children`s Choir. It is my intention to return to England and continue my acting career In Film and Television and in Musical Theatre.
