My interest in music began for me when I was about 7 years old and living in the Northern Territory. I taught myself to read music and play the recorder, later having some lessons on the instrument. I played what I heard on the radio and TV and made up my own pieces which I wrote down on manuscript paper.

When I was a teenager, my family moved to Canberra, and after High School and SecondaryCollege I began a Science degree at the Australian National University with honours mathematics. After a year I realised music was taking over my life, so i decided to make a change. I studied media and music at the University of Canberra and the Australian Centre for the Arts and Technology in Canberra, which also included a Major in Psychology at the Australian National University. This gave me a Bachelor of Arts degree in Comunication.

In 1994 I moved to Sydney where  I continued teaching music as well as working in the field of Optics as an Opical Mechanic and Optical Dispensor. Along the way I gained my A.Mus.A in Clarinet performance.

From 1997 I began working as a research assistant and cataloguer and then as a researcher with the ABC in the Archives and Libraries department. At the ABC I was lucky enough to work on on an exteremely large variety of TV programmes, but my main interest was in in News and Current Affairs. At the same time I continued teaching as well as gaining further qualifications and experience in Film production and Film Music Compostition.

In 2010 I gained a 2nd A.Mus.A., this time in Saxophone performance.

Currently I am working full time developing and running my Music Studio as well as directing two ensembles from the Lane Cove Concert Band.
