I am a musician, songwriter and mentor.
I have 24 years of experience as a musician, with 17 years of songwriting experience, and 15 years of live performance experience.
I started humming to guitar chords in the early 2000’s. I made sure my family couldn’t hear my screechy voice because I would play inside the car sitting out the front of the house.
My friends once found my recording of the first ever song I wrote, and decided it would be hilarious to play it, loud, through the speakers. I didn't want anyone to hear my music. It was a humiliating experience.
Luckily, it didn’t stop me.
Over time, lessons learnt, effort and consistency, I grew into a grounded yet unashamed singer-songwriter, played with bands, recorded more stuff, and made some epic events.
The reward is that I am now comfortable in sharing my music with people whenever and wherever, without hesitation.
The lessons I learnt along the way, I now apply in my mentoring classes in the DIY Musicians Academy, for those who are ready to embrace their own individual artistry.
Oh how the times have changed.
