We're all far more than the sum of our parts. To give you an insight into who I am, and more importantly, what I can do for you... I've removed the self congratulatory padding you'll find on most 'about 'ME' web pages. 

Here's some context and a snapshot of where I am today. 

During the last 2.5 years, I've learned more than in the previous 10 years, thanks to... fatherhood, inspiring friends and amazing clients. 


  • Personally I Am...

• Motivated by family. 

• Connected to music in a way that is impossible to describe...

• Always studying something that I can implement.

• A fan of non-alcoholic beer! (I only found this out a few months ago... judge me if you wish).

• A lover of podcasts... Not a day goes by without having Marc Maron, Frank Skinner or This American Life in my ears.

• A big fan of travelling. I love the energy of London and the tranquility of Norway! I also lived in Germany for a while.

  • Professionally I Am...

• A coach and teacher, who helps ambitious performers get things done.

• Driven to help people.

• Someone who believes that great education can be delivered quickly.

• A business consultant to musicians, recording studios, music instrument manufacture. 

• A drummer and percussionist, inspired to create great feelings on stage, and off it. 

  • Professionally I Have...

• Failed at various ventures, learning lots along the way! 

• Been hired to perform with some of the greatest musicians in the world. Check out my 'Performed With' page.

• Created a global events company with my partner James that is truly unique, and constantly evolving.

• Developed websites and marketing strategy including producing podcasts for various businesses.

• Worked as a business coach for musicians in business since 2014.

• Written for and taught at degree and post graduate levels.

• Support from the finest instrument manufacturers in the world. Check out my 'Affiliated To' page.

• Published articles on various aspects of performance and performance psychology in music print publications.

• Worked in over 25 countries among a diverse range of people.


  • Right now I'm currently focussed on 2 things...

• Helping outstanding ambitious musicians and creatives develop sustainable careers. 

• Playing the drums and percussion! 

 

 

 

I am very proud and happy to be supported by these amazing companies...
