Tenor, alto and soprano saxophones, B flat clarinet
After studying sculpture at the Brighton College of Art & Design he went to
the CAT in Newcastle (now the Newcastle University) where he graduated in
Light Music (nowadays called jazz). Several years later, whilst visiting friends
and playing concerts in Brussels (1988), he discovered that the Brussels
Conservatory was opening a new jazz section and decided to follow the
courses -4 years- given by Belgian musicians such as Steve Houben, Jean
Louis Rassinfosse and Bruno Castellucci, ending up with a first prize in
saxophone and a diploma in Jazz Studies.
Whilst at the Brussels Conservatory, he naturally became involved in the
Brussels jazz scene, playing with many of the local musicians who were
heavily centered around two places 'Travers' and 'The Kaai'
