I am a professional trombone specialist and multi-instrumentalist (brass instruments, piano and tenor), teacher, composer and arranger and musical director.
Originally from Kent, in the U.K., but moved to Saudi Arabia when I was 9 and was introduced to the trombone.
When I moved back to England in 1998 to continue my education I carried on playing the trombone at the King's School in Grantham and was involved in many different ensembles within the Lincolnshire Music Service.
Previously I worked in financial services, and added in extra musical work including private teaching, directing of a variety of ensembles and choirs, and performing with a number of bands, orchestras and ensembles.
In April 2010 I was finally at the point where I could justify giving up my full time (now part-time) job, and became a professional musician.
I have now been working exclusively as a musician for just over a year now, and it has been the best decision of my professional career.
