ABOUT

I've been playing drums since the age of 7 and have been fortunate enough to be part of numerous ensembles gigging around the country, and into Europe. Coming from a classical background, I have transitioned into jazz and now more commercial mainstream styles.

Having lived in Cornwall all my life I can appreciate it's a beautiful part of the world and it's a great base for my other passion - software development (complete contrast!).

EQUIPMENT

I have a range of Yamaha acoustic drums with Zildjian cymbals, along with Roland Electronics. My setup can change according the situation / requirement but I like to be as self-contained as possible. For example I carry my own mics, in-ears, monitor desk with mic split, power distribution and playback from iPad if needed.
