I grew up in East Fremantle, Western Australia, and started playing classical piano as a kid, and got the banjo bug when I was about 14 years old. I moved to Sydney when I was 21 to tour with Slim Dusty and then went on to play in such bands as the Flying Emus, Sensitive New Age Cowpersons, Keith Urban, and Paul Kelly and the Stormwater Boys among others. In recent times I've performed with Jane Germain and Wayne Perry and the City Slickers. In 2010 John Kane and I recorded a banjo instrumental CD "The Banjo" which is a banjo's "Greatest Hits". John and I have also released our 2nd CD on ABC Music in Australia and iTunes called "Banjo Australis" , featuring all Australian music. In 2017 I landed a part playing the banjo in Ben Elton's 'Three Summers' movie, filmed locally in Western Australia. I continue to teach, perform, record and produce music.
