I am a British-born jazz saxophonist and composer, inspired by the warm tones of legendary tenor saxophonists such as Stan Getz, Dexter Gordon, Ben WebsterLester Young and Zoot Sims amongst others.

After discovering a passion for jazz music in my early childhood in the 1980’s, my ambition to learn to play the saxophone became a reality at the age of 13, after proving my commitment to learning the clarinet from the age of 9.

I went on to study jazz performance and composition at Leeds College of Music (now Leeds Conservatoire), playing both alto and tenor saxophones, and moved to Denmark in 2004, where I currently reside today.
