ABOUT

Middle-aged man-child returned to drumming three years ago after letting the boring stuff get in the way for the last 20 years. I'm currently playing with the band ManFrog and have been gigging with them for the last few years including mini festivals, charity gigs and headlining club gigs. Prior to that I had 8 years experience of playing pubs, clubs and smallish venues in London and had a temporary side job as a drum-tech at the Nomis Recording Studios in Olympia.

I'm committed and hold myself to a high standard so I'm progressing daily. I'm no Portnoy (yet) but certainly keen enough to get out there with other musicians without embarrassing myself too much.

For me it's about making music. I don't personally do egos or politics and If that's your thing I'm fine with that as long you're aware I'm here for the sh*t, giggles and good times. I take the music seriously but everything else is about the craic.
