Biography

Hi There, I'm a London/France based professional drummer. I was born in London but have residence both in the Provence and North London. I started playing drum at the age of 11 and had my first professional gig at the age of 18 with an originals band. Between 1994 and 2001 I was mainly playing with a variety of originals bands and artists. In 2001 I was offered a UK tour with an INXS tribute band and this was my first covers gig and my initial transition from originals to Tributes, Party and Events bands.
