“I have been making instruments for the past fifteen years, at first at instrument making courses in the school holidays in Germany, then working with a harpmaker in Scotland for six months prior to joining the London College of Furniture in 1992. After a six year training in making baroque instruments, violins and guitars/mandolins I graduated with an honours degree in 1998. I moved to Ramsgate, Kent in the south east of England in 2002 where I share a workshop with my wife, the hurdy-gurdy maker Claire Dugué.
I mostly make mandolins, irish bouzoukis, mandolas and citterns for a wide range of players in various countries.“
