About Me

I have over 46 years experience of playing the Piano and Keyboard. I was trained through certifications by London College of Music, Trinity College of Music and Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

I trained for 10 years on the Piano.

I have written and composed Music for TV/Film as well as been on Radio/Magazines and Newpapers.

I studied at the Edinburgh Acting School under Anna Tinline.

I have performed as an Actor in several plays and at the Edinburgh Festival in shows such as Grease, Into Fame, The Miser, The Great Celestial Cow, Our Town and Oklahoma.

I have several compositions to which I wrote and put forward the Music for James Bond and Baywatch.

I continue to write and compose Music for enjoyment and I have recently been asked to compose the opening Music to a TV Series in the USA. So it is now all down to the studios if they want to take the TV Series on.It is also very expensive to do so. I do however have good contacts within the Music and TV/Film Industry. 

I'm a former Resident Hotel Pianist and played at the Castle Hotel in Windsor daily as well as being head hunted to play for well known Bistro that was in St.Albans.


I am a family man and married to Anna and we have a wonderful son called Robert and a daughter called Ingrid, who is a teacher (Primary ). Robert was 10yrs old in August and enjoys listening to music and playing the keyboard too. .


I'm a Scotsman who has lived in Slough for more than 25 years now.Infact I have spent more time in England than I have in Scotland.It's a mixed bag in our home as Anna is from Lithuania and speaks English , Lithuanian and Russian.
