I have been playing the drums since an early age and have studied all of the necessary skills and techniques to work in the music recording industry.

Since graduating from the Royal National College for the Blind in 2000 in Music Technology I have been involved in numerous recording projects and have played drums in bands, ranging from heavy rock, indie, blues and currently

Most recently I have been the drum tutor at Mind in Croydon running a music workshop for clients with mental illness helping them overcome their problems using drumming to give them a positive outlook on life and a love of playing drums.

I am the only blind drum tutor of the Drum Sense teaching programme founded by Collin Woolway and have been teaching this programme since 2010.



I am more than comfortable both in live and recording situations, owning all of my own pro standard equipment including the revellutionary roland td 20 drum kit and all of my own pro recording gear as well., so I am able to send you work any where in the world via the web!

.


I am a committed musician who takes playing the drums very seriously and will give 110 percent to any project that I am involved in.

Please do not overlook the fact that I am blind as this may mean you miss out on the opportunity of bagging a great musician, It's what I do when I am behind the kit, not when I am away from it that matters!

TV & Reality

A Passionate out-going an very confident person I am at a ease in any situation and love talking especially with a background in a studio and in radio broadcasting talking comes naturally!
