I've been working as a genre-disregarding beat maker for over a decade. Drums have taken me all over Europe and Britain to such prestigious stages as the Royal Albert Hall, Innsbruck Hafen, Bratislava PKO, Dublin Temple Bar Music Centre, Vienna Gasometer, Camden's Koko and many more.
I've appeared on numerous recordings with a wide variety of musicians and has lent my talents to a disparate yet super-talented selection of bands (see website for examples). I've been teaching for over 2 years now.
