After studies at the Royal Academy of Music,
he was appointed principal horn with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
at the age of eighteen. Within three years he was offered the principal
horn positions of both the Philharmonia and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras.
He joined the Philharmonia and remained in that post for ten years
before leaving to concentrate on his solo and chamber music career.
His work as director/soloist or conductor has seen him perform in Japan,
Australia, the U.S.A. Europe and Scandinavia, including his debut with
the Danish Radio Sinfonietta in Copenhagen, the Ostgota Winds Symphony
in Sweden and the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. In the UK he has directed

Ulster Youth Orchestra and the Royal Academy's Sinfonia and Concert
orchestras. He has conducted a number of community orchestras and was
Principal Conductor of the City of Rochester Symphony Orchestra

His concert schedule takes him worldwide and his discography includes
the major solo horn repertoire, period instrument recordings
and a number of critically acclaimed CDs with his wind quintet
and horn quartet. As a member of the London Sinfonietta he is at the
forefront of new music and has given many first performances,
including the UK premieres of Ligeti's "Hamburg Concerto" and Richard
Ayres' "Noncerto". In addition to his classical work, he is very
active as a studio musician, playing on sound tracks too numerous to
