Born in 1977, I caught the guitar bug through listening to too much Jimi Hendrix and Chicago blues. Later guitar obsessions involved Frank Zappa which led onto a keen interest in jazz and contemporary concert music. I think I've had a go at playing most kinds of guitar - playing everywhere they'd let me from hip-hop records to opera orchestras (counting - arghh!) Still, it's jazz that I keep coming back to on the guitar - inspired by my unwavering love of the jazz guitar greats and an unhealthy obsession with the recordings of John Coltrane and Miles Davis.
Other musical activities involve singing as a classical bass-baritone, both on the opera stage, in churches and in concerts hall, solo, ensemble and in choirs. Early music is a particular geeky obsession, as is pointless guitar shop talk. Bring it on!

Playing gigs, studying music, movement and drama, working in an office(still!) trying to keep my head together.
