In his long career he has been associated with theatre, particularly fringe productions, musical theatre and cabaret, he has also written for Amateur Stage, Theatregoer Magazine and currently Musical Theatre Review. He was one of the inaugural judges for the Off-West End Awards and this year had the pleasure of returning to the LOST One Act Play Festival.
