Artistic practice Bossa Nova guitar, jazz and blues drums, Latin music, comedy fiction, music journalism, creative writing
Creative writing, music and languages are my passion. I’m a trained communicator and creative writer and spend much of my spare time working on fiction, comedy and copywriting (web, news, radio, video, and social media). I love learning languages and have conversational level Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese, and beginner level Japanese.
I have been playing drums, guitar and singing for more than 25 years. World Music is my favourite (mostly on Brazilian music, especially Bossa Nova). I’ve also studied and played African music (marimba/balafon) and Japanese taiko drumming. I’m always looking for opportunities to explore World Music.
