I started audio engineering at TMC studios in Tooting, London where I specialised in reggae and dance music. I was  during this time a member of the Nick Straker Band
in the early eighties and co-produced and wrote material for four albums. It was also during this time that I worked with Dennis Bovell, who I still work with to this day. I learned through this period about the more technical aspects of recording,( Tape alignment, microphone technique, and early automation systems ) as well as sequencing, digital recording and the use of time codes.


Born 1954 Edinburgh. During primary and secondary school education I played violin,ending up playing for the Scottish Youth Orchestra. On Leaving school I took up guitar and went to college to study electronics. When I was 19, I left home to live in Germany, where I toured around for  a year and a half.
