Euan's Profile

Experience Summary

I am an actor and work in film, tv, theatre and corporate work includes video and role play. A somewhat precarious industry at the best of times I have supplemented my income with sales demonstration work over the past twenty one years. Demonstrating a wide range of household and electrical products at retail shows like the Ideal Home Show, BBC Good Food Shows etc. I keep myself reasonably fit by playing tennis regularly throughout the summer in addition to running, swimming and pilates. I own my own 2008 short wheel base VW transporter. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
