My Journey

I started out playing a variety of instruments and singing with street-theatre & circus artists in London, Paris and Amsterdam. In 1992 I began my journey into flamenco guitar & lived in Spain throughout the 90s where I had the chance to study with some of the modern masters of flamenco guitar – Gerado Nuñez, Manolo Sanlucar, Carlos Heredia & Diego Amaya.

I am now based in London and continue to work as musical director of Flamenco Express touring in the UK & Europe. As a composer/producer I have written and recorded scores for film, TV, contemporary dance and theatre including work with Granada TV, Channel 4 Films, The Young Vic, Cirque du Soleil & the Royal Shakespeare Company.
