I am a 28-year-old jazz guitarist based in London, most regularly spotted running my own jam sessions at the Bounce Jazz Jam in North London, and the Indo Jazz Jam in Whitechapel. I have been steadily been making a name for myself on the jazz scene since moving to the city in 2012, after graduating from a BMus at the University of Hull.

On top of running a teaching business, Music Mode, I am a bandleader playing standards and original material my own trio and quartet, being a member of Rhythm’s of The City - an ambitious samba band led by Barak Schmool, as well as many other sideman gigs.

I have studied with many of the world's top guitar players both from private study and various workshops and course. To name a few; Hannes Riepler, Peter Bernstein, Nir Felder, Lage Lund, Gilad Hekselman, Ben Monder, Chris Montague.
