I'm a professional session drummer based in Lincolnshire in the UK and I am available for recording and live sessions worldwide.

Since 2007 I've been a member of October File and signed to Candlelight Records - I've released several albums with the band so far, played a number of large festivals across Europe and toured with larger acts such as Lacuna Coil, Fear Factory, Sylosis, Prong and more.

With my session work I've recorded and played live with a variety of artists in many different genres which have included pop/rock, progressive & blackened death metal, symphonic / operatic metal, doom metal, hard rock and even a charity Christmas single.

I bring a relaxed and professional attitude to any session, along with a solid understanding of the digital recording process and am perfectly comfortable with click tracks. My equipment is also of a professional standard and can be depended upon to bring a great sound to whatever project you may have. You'll find that I work quickly and efficiently to maximise on studio time and minimise on costs.

I am also a proud endorsing artist for Protection Racket cases, Aquarian Drumheads, Shaw Sticks, Murat Diril Cymbals, Variphone/Westone In-ears, Duallist Pedals, Flynn Drums and TunerFish Lug Locks.
