I live on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, about an hour out of Melbourne.
My main instrument is guitar; I sing and can play a bunch of other stringed instruments with varying degrees of proficiency.
I record and produce albums across a wide range of genres from South American Punk to Celtic Harp. I have a mobile recording rig - more about recording which is in regular use at places where the artist feels most comfortable.
Working with First Nations bands is a passion; recording and producing Black Rock Band's second album as well as recording and producing the debut Docker River Band album have been highlights.
I’m a sometime live sound tech, something which was a big part of my working life for a decade or so. I only tend to work live for desert trips these days. I've been sound tech on the last two Bush Bands Business weeks for Skinnyfish Music, as well as sound tech on the last two WA Arts Sand Tracks Tour to remote communities.
I teach a bit of guitar and singing and do mentor work with young bands. I'm the guitar tutor at the annual Mornington Community Primary Schools Music Camp at the Briars in Mt Martha.
Keeping Green South Records up and running keeps me busy, along with co-managing West Arnhem Land group Black Rock Band and voluntary work as secretary of the mighty Rosebud Cricket Club. I do the odd bit of graphic design work, make videos and do a bit of photography.
I’m a qualified journalist, I have a Diploma of Music and am a registered foster carer.
