"I love Chocolate, my wife and two boys Jace & Cooper. Oh, but not as much as I love my Deep Vintage II heads…………….Obviously!"



I was born & raised in Liverpool, England in the year nineteen hundred and seventy five. I love Ringo, Liverpool FC & John Smiths… (google it) I now live in Los Angeles, via London, New York & Las Vegas. I have been in various things, from dangerous bar bands in Liverpool to tours around the world with International artists to Broadway & West End shows.
