My music experience is vey rich, I have been playing guitar for fifteen years and I am very comfortable in in all styles and genres. My music skills developed when I began studying Music at university in London and studied many different world musics including; Middle Eastern Music, Balinese and Javanese Gamelan, Jazz and African music. Studying and practising these different styles of music introduced me to many different rhythms and textures, and my ability to play music has been improved ever since and I now have a unique ability to many styles with passion, precision and energy.

Since graduating I have been working as a session guitarist, writer and co-writer. My work consists of writing and recording in studios. I am usually writing with artists or other songwriters and producers and and I am writing as an independent artist.
My session work consists of using my skills as a guitarist and backing vocalist to perform pre-written material for popular artists. I have recently returned from a radio promotion tour in Germany with the singer, Leslie Clio, please see the video in my profile for an example of our performance.

In 2015 I moved to Berlin for session guitarist opportunities and began working with some of Germany's top songwriters, I also put on gigs under the name 'Oh Honey'

I am now based in the UK and since returning I have played numerous weddings and events, acting as frontman and musical director for a 9-piece function band and performing solo with acoustic guitar with a vast repertoire consisting of chart songs and classics spanning back to the 50's. I am now looking for lead guitar and guitar/vocalist opportunities within the UK and abroad.
