I'm an accomplished pipe band snare drummer with over 30 years’ playing experience and serve as the current lead drummer of the Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia Pipe Band, where I've been a member for over 16 years. 

I'm originally from Ontario, Canada, where I took up drumming at the age of 8. Under the tuition of Doug Stronach I moved up through the solo and band grades and progressed up to grade 1 with the Metro Toronto Police in 1996.

In 2004 I made the big decision to move to Scotland and join the renowned Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia Pipe Band. During my time with the band I've won 2 World Pipe Band Championships, 3 World Drumming Titles and numerous other band and drumming prizes at various major championships. I currently live near Glasgow with my amazing family.
