"At the age of eleven I performed in my first professional show as a drummer at Bathurst City Bowling Club. I knew even at this young age my passion for music would shape my future. Encouraged by family and friends and driven by personal desire and positive feedback, I've managed to establish myself as a long term, self funded independent artist. I see this as a major achievement and am proud of having been able to sustain a musical career through commitment, dedication, and determination to succeed."
