ABOUT

I am a full-time musician and have played guitar for over 15 years – both live and in recording sessions.

I have worked in all aspects of the industry, from fronting a band in front of 12,000 people, being a hired sideman, to producing, arranging and engineering.

I have clocked countless miles on the road across North America and Europe.

I listen to almost all genres, drawing creative ideas from each style and have professionally worked in each style, including anything from Folk, Hip Hop, Ambient, EDM, Hard Rock, Jingles for Radio / T.V and Music for Film.
