About
I am Australian and my wife and I currently live in Switzerland. We work full-time in education and have lived in Australia, the UK, Singapore, Korea and now Switzerland, teaching in International Schools. Music has always been a passion of mine and I often wonder what would have been if I ever pursued it professionally. Although I don't consider myself a performer, I've always enjoyed playing and writing songs in a broad range of styles.

Songwriting Achievements:
In 2017 I collaborated with two other colleagues to co-write and produce a children's musical (I was responsible for the lyrics and music). We are currently working on our second project together.

Aside from that, I've only ever written songs for fun so have no official achievements.
