I fell in love with drums when I was four years old when I heard Bill Haley & the Comets' 'Rock Around the Clock' on my grandparents old record player. I started playing on a borrowed kit in the hay shed on our farm.
Soon after, Mum and Dad bought me a second hand kit and I was allowed to play in the house! I played along to records after school and joined my first band at age fourteen. We played Creedence, Elvis and The Beatles etc.
I started playing and writing original music at sixteen and moved interstate to follow the music dream at nineteen.
I played and toured with many bands including Pollyanna and Violetine before joining The Living End in 2002.
Outside of music I love surfing, food and coffee.
