"An eclectic mix of the sacred & profane"
When you talk about a great actor, you're not talking about Tom Cruise.
I've been an actor for over twenty years. I'm experienced in TIE, regional touring and West End. I've also performed in USA, Eastern Europe and China and wherever possible I love using theatre and Arts to work with people from all backgrounds and nationalities.
Although I've always kept involved with theatre I took a break from performing as I wanted to explore other arts skills and develop my film work. Now in 2013, after a few short films as an actor, I am ready to take on the role of performer once more.
I am Associate Producer of UK charity Purple Field Productions who help international development through making educational films in native languages. I'm proud to be the Director of Malawi's first ever feature film for young people about HIV/AIDS - Mawa Langa (My Tomorrow). The award-winning film is estimated to have been seen by over 50,000 people in Malawi & is now being used in HIV education across sub-Saharan Africa.

2013 I directed another drama - this time to help rural communities combat the effects of climate change. You could say it is "The Archers for Malawi" but it really is a meaty epic... see the trailer.
MBEU YOSINTHA (seeds of change)
I've always combined my performing work with Directing and since 2000 I have focused on filmmaking and community development. I am now a Trustee of CommunityCARTS a charity set up to provide essential youth services in the rural areas where I live in East Cambridgeshire.
2015 I am currently heavily involved with the 999 Call for the NHS Campaign - raising awareness about the fragmentation & selling-off of the NHS and I'm involved in creating theatre/film/arts events as a meaningful contribution to engaging with the public in this vital campaign work.
I'm also touring with my one man/many women cabaret LAPTOP DANCER.
