ABOUT ME


At Spring Harvest 1995, I realised God was real and I wanted to worship Him. I've never stopped.


I'm deeply passionate about helping people to engage with God, deepening their relationship with Him as they worship. It's been great to support teams across the South West through coaching and coming alongside musicians from a variety of church backgrounds.


Although I usually lead worship from acoustic guitar, I can also be found behind the keyboard and have loved being able to learn more about the Nord and MainStage over the past few years.
