About Me

luthierI have had a very varied career.

I am a Chemical Engineer by profession with a long career in process plant operations and projects now behind me.

I had a 2 year period teaching Chemistry in a UK Secondary School.

All along with these main occupations I learned woodworking skills and applied them to personal projects such as building sailing boats and canoes.  I then formalised this with an NVQ Level 3 course in Boatbuilding at the Boatbuilding Academy in Lyme Regis.

And finally, I have completed my formal training with a four-year course in Guitar-Making & Repair at South Thames College, London.

I have deliberately made instruments of totally different types so that I got the broadest possible exposure to the construction techniques.

Now, you can enjoy one of my instruments.  Let me know what you would like.
