Bio I started playing guitar as a 12 year old when I found an old, broken one in the garden shed at home. Though I had been playing various instruments and singing since I could remember, discovering the guitar began a love of the instrument that took me right through to University. During uni years I played in various bands doing both originals and covers around Queensland, and toured to the USA as well. After completing a Bachelor of Music (Jazz Guitar Specialisation) I have spent the last couple of years travelling on and off and writing the basic framework of my first album.

Since arriving back to Australia in March 2017 after my latest backpacking stint, I have been playing shows throughout Qld as well as working on my debut recording, set to be released early 2018.

My influences are wide ranging and quite eclectic, and include artists such as Tommy Emmanuel, James Sherlock, Kristen Berardi, Ella Fitzgerald, Paul Simon, Mariah Carey, Imagine Dragons and Rachelle Ferrell, just to name a few.

I discovered House Concerts Australia after hosting a few of my own to help other local musicians have an opportunity to perform to a friendly audience. After realising how rewarding and enjoyable the night is for everyone involved, I am now very keen to perform in local homes and backyards as possible!
