How long have I been associated with the charity?
I have been a band workshop leader since 2017.
How I am involved in the charity:
I direct and support the percussion section of the band and occasionally lead the band with song writing sessions and rehearsals.
My background has always been teaching drums and working with large groups of musicians. I have also performed and recorded with a number of bands and artists.
What attracted me to working with Arts Without Boundaries:
Teaming up with everyone at BwB was a very easy decision. I have always been attracted to working with aspiring musicians and I also had a second passion, which was supporting young people with autism and learning difficulties. Working with BwB seemed like and is the perfect amalgamation of two of the things I love to do.
Outside of music and teaching I have a number of interests. I love to cook and go to restaurants, I am a big fan of movies and video games, and more recently (the last 5 years or so) I have really gotten in to snowboarding and skiing.
