I was born in Melbourne, Australia. When I was twelve years old I bought an old, left-handed guitar from a school friend. It changed my life. The first song I remember writing had a chorus line that began, “My wahine, my surfer girl.” I guess it neatly combined two other important aspects of my existence back then.

helping to start up a hippy community where I played guitar and sang locally in order to buy fuel for the tractor; developing what I think is a unique guitar sound and style for particular songs ('Ha Bedee Duranjah' on the 2018 album Synaptic Overflow
