I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Popular Music and Recording from The University of Salford and a Master of Arts degree in Music Since 1900 from Liverpool Hope University.

I first studied for a Diploma in Light Music in the early 1980s at Mabel Fletcher Technical College in Liverpool then worked as a freelance musician and sound engineer developing my own PA hire business before signing to Arista Records and BMG Music Publishing as guitarist and member of 16 Tambourines, releasing an album and two singles and touring with Squeeze, Hue & Cry and Wet Wet Wet. I subsequently worked as a tour manager and sound engineer before returning to education to study at The University of Salford.

I worked as operations manager for Adlib Audio while continuing to perform as a freelance musician performing in theatre productions and recording library albums for Primrose Music.

I entered education as a main grade lecturer in 1999 at Liverpool Community College whilst continuing to develop commercial music and audio projects.

I am a director of The Vocal Booth that provides audio services to the TV, Film and digital media industries. I write and record songs and music for children working with Toddler Fun Learning/Moonbug.
