Biography

I began playing music at the age of 7, and have a strong affinity for the performing arts and its recording, both audibly and visually. I attended university where I specialised in drums, and later taught A-level music. In 2012 I became the backline technician for touring artist Steve Winwood, and in 2014 became the stage manager and lighting designer, where I toured with artists such as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Steely Dan, Rod Stewart and The Allman Brothers in some of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals such as Madison Square Gardens, Glastonbury and Woodstock.
