Since graduating from music college I have played drums/percussion in small Orchestras for pantomimes and musicals such as 'Little shop of Horrors', 'Oliver', 'My Fair Lady', 'Jesus Christ Superstar', 'South Pacific' etc. I have also played drums and keyboards in many bands for functions and gigs, playing pop/rock/jazz styles of music. My main interest has always been music but I have had other jobs from time to time. I enjoy spending time with my family during the holidays and travel to Cardiff, Wales, to be with them.
