He regularly gigs with his own trio and freelances with a wide variety of acts both locally and abroad. During the last five years his focus has been jazz organ music, travelling to the US to study with Hammond masters Dr. Lonnie Smith and Tony Monaco, and writing a thesis comparing the styles of Jimmy Smith and Larry Young.
