"I have been a professional musician since I was 18, enjoying the last of my teenage years playing in touring circuit bands throughout Australia. Since then I have focused on my overall musicianship. I enjoy everything from session work and live performing to corporate development, tutoring and clinics. The lastvfew years have seen me team up with some very creative people in Tauranga NZ to create the Summerfest music and performing arts festival with 11000 people turing up! After founding the Mauao Performing Arts Centre -mauaopac.co.nz - in 2010 i have since moved back into performance and writing full time and i'm now back on the Australian touring circuit. Life is good:)"
