B I O
Based in the Sutherland Shire I have been repairing guitars and other string instruments for over 15 years. What started as a hobby of curiosity has turned in a lifelong passion. Starting off as a drummer I slowly learned guitar and a number of other instruments - a jack of all trades but master of none. My real passion came by pulling the instruments apart when other band members had a problem. And then putting them back together. I soon became the go-to person to fix up instruments.
Since then I have learned the craft and skills from a number of excellent craftsman and through invaluable experience. My philosophy is simple - quality craftmanship and instrument playability. Whether you are a student or a professional your instrument is an extension of your musical style and expression. It should be reliable and play in a way that you want.
My passion in working with string instruments has led me to pursue the fine art of lutherie. I make hand crafted Violins and Mandolins. I am also a member of the Australian Association of Musical Instrument Makers.
I also have a keen interest in supporting local live music and musicians. Todays students will become tomorrows professionals and need support from local venues and patrons. Visit the links below and be involved!
