Originally from Brisbane, I was trained by world renowned 'master drummer' Grant Collins. I co-owned and managed a corporate/wedding cover band and an original Country/Pop act (Georgia Fall) with my partner Mellissa, which has reached chart topping success since the release of the debut album 'Love The Hard Way'. Combined with my work as a "hired gun" for performance and studio sessions, I have gained a well rounded knowledge and understanding of the music industry and developed a very high standard across all aspects of it which has helped me in becoming a reputable drummer in the Brisbane/Sydney music scene.
After two years in Sydney working on and launching Georgia Fall's first album, touring and playing as a session musician, I am returning to Brisbane to perform, teach and record full time. Currently looking for paid live and studio work as a professional drummer and percussionist, please feel free to contact me for live performance, studio and private tuition enquiries!
Current endorsee with DW Drums & Hardware, PDP Drums & Percussion, Evans Drumheads, Meinl Cymbals & Percussion and Protection Racket Cases.
