I am an accomplished guitarist, bassist and vocalist and an average keyboard player. However, my real skill is as a music technologist and producer. I taught guitar for 15 years, have played for countless shows and have worked as a performer in all genres. Please visit my LinkTree link below to some of the music that I have made via all the usual providers.


I am incredibly experienced audio engineer and have developed a specialism as a mix engineer. I primarily work as a live engineer these days but have also provided studio mixing for a diverse range of artists and projects including SK Shlomo and Zeo Church.

If you would like me to record or mix your project please listen to examples of my work and get in touch with me below.
