Personal Description:

I come from Co.Durham and was introduced to the drums at the age of thirteen and recieved tuition from some of the North Easts leading teachers.

I started off playing in brass bands and whilst I was a senior school I was already a busy musician playing for shows, backing singers and playing for all types of musical jobs.

By the time I was sixteen I was accepted into the National Youth music theatre on percussion and was already playing professionally and began freelancing. I went to work in live theatre, studio sessions, function bands, TV commercials and also toured internationally and recorded with numerous artists including Blue, Modern Romance, Howard Jones, Wycliffe Gordon and many more.
