At age 8 I showed interest in piano and organ and began to take lessons from various teachers. After a couple of years I started studying a course with the associated board of the Royal Schools of Music which is where I developed an appreciation for the likes of Chopin, Bach, Beethoven, Debussy, Lizst and many others.
At the age of 14, I began to take an interest in different types of Rock music and took an interest in Boogie Woogie Piano which led me to the styles of Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard.
At the age of 17, I attended the Leinster School of Music and later was a student in Chatam Row, where I studied performance piano and gained lots of experience by performing in top venues such as the Four Season's Hotel and l'Ecrivain Restaurant (Dublin) where I had the pleasure of playing for some of my most admired musical heroes like Neil Young, Phil Coulter, Slash, The Corrs and on one occasion, Quincy Jones who praised me on my Boogie Woogie and Blues playing.
I have also toured all over Europe with various bands.
