I am a professional drummer, music teacher and session musician based in Hertfordshire, UK.


I have 16 years drumming experience. I have a BA Hons in Professional Musicianship earned at the Brighton Institute Of Modern Music and a BTEC Nat Diploma in Music Practice. I have had the pleasure to have been taught by world class drummers such as Steve White (Paul Weller / Style Council) Vinnie Lammi (Robbie Williams / Spice Girls) and Pat Garvey (Rag n’ Bone Man / The Darkness) to name a few.


I've gained a lot of experience in the industry sharing the stage with many top acts & musicians. My proudest moment was being the live drummer for EDM & Dubstep star, Flux Pavilion, taking the stage at SW4, Great Escape Festival and Brixton Electric. 


I currently play for Alt / Emo band Lapyear and we have been gigging, writing and touring since 2016. Lapyear are currently signed to Venn Records, run by Laurent Barnard (Gallows / Gold Key / Krokodil) and managed by Saviour Management. We have just played the legendary House of Vans and our new EP ‘Smile’ is dropping in Spring 2019.
