WHO AM I?

If you've landed on my page, i'd like to wish you a massive welcome and hope you get in touch sometime.

I've been playing guitar professionally for 22 years, working with loads of bands in recording studios all over Australia, the UK and USA.

Starting out producing records at school, i knew that music, and recording guitars would end up being a huge part of my life.

I've worked with producers such as Lee Groves (Dave Matthews, Black Eyed Peas), Chris Kimsey (The Rolling Stones, INXS), Steve James (Screaming Jets, The Rutles, Mental as Anything) and many more including working with wonderful music directors such as Chong Lim and John Foreman.
