About me

I have played the pipes for over 30 years, learning in Aberdeen, Scotland and now living in Wellington, New Zealand.  I have played for numerous bands including the legendary Shotts and Dykehead, winning two World Championships back in 2003 and 2005. 


I was the Pipe Major of the Wellington Red Hackle, moving them from Grade 4B to 2 in just 5 years and travelled to Canada to play for the world renowned Simon Fraser University Pipe Band, based in Burnaby, British Columbia from 2015 to 2019.

Here is the Medley that was first overall on Saturday at the World Pipe Band Championships 2019 :


In addition to band success I was the proud winner of the NZ Gold Medal for Piobaireachd in 2011.

I am now based in Invercargill, where I am a member of the ILT City of Invercargill Pipe Band.
