I’ve been fortunate enough to play gigs at venues like the Hammersmith Apollo, Birmingham Symphony Hall, O2 Indigo, and the Manchester Apollo.

I am an experienced recording musician and as well as the usual sessions I also have my own studio space that allows me to quickly track high quality drums for clients all over the world.

I offer a drum transcription and drum chart service (from road-tested cheat sheets right up to note-for-note transcriptions). Completed work will soon be available in the web shop.
