Raised in Glenfield,the self-taught guitarist grew up around music and was practicing religiously by the time he was 10 and performed live throughout his teens. But this local guitar hero,one of the meanest and fastest in the business,is just as deft at playing Hendrix covers and his own heavy psychedelic blues rock songs like Acid Manas he is at getting his dexterous fingers around a complicated jazz classic.

It was the 31-year-old's jazz prowess that got him into Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music when he was in his late teens. After four years at Berklee,graduating with a Masters in Guitar Performance,he stayed on in America,doing everything from busking in New York to playing jazz festivals in New Orleans.

He returned to New Zealand in his early 20s and for the past eight years he's been playing between three and five gigs a week which helps him "get by". During that time he's supported everyone from Slash at Vector Arena to Elton John in Dunedinand met and played alongside some of his guitar heroes like Joe Satriani and Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple.
