    Hi there

    I am the current conductor for Ballymacarrett Defenders Flute Band, Belfast as well as Vice Band Captain, instructor for Learner Class (flute) I rejoined the band about 10 years ago after a very long absence from the band scene.

    My first band was Pride of the Raven, I joined the Raven when I was 9/10 and walked with them for about 5 years, a band rule about long hair saw me leave the Raven. I had a brief stint with the Rising Sons, East Belfast, before joining Ballymacarrett. I joined just as they were beginning to enter the NIBA and FBL competitions, and was part of the band when they won their very first FBL competition with the piece Boots and Saddles.

    I became a youth worker with a specific focus on peace building and left the band scene due to what I seen as a conflict of interests. However after quite a few years I realised that I was denying a vital part of my identity and how would we ever foster understanding if we didn't engage properly with what we believe and why and as a result of an innovative programme that encouraged seriously open dialogue I re-engaged with th band scene and returned to the Ballymacarrett Defenders.

    I am currently writing a book, a biography of my early years in the band scene, and the interest in this has been very positive so far. I am hoping to have a publisher lined up very soon.

    I live in Belfast and I am now an IT Trainer with a specific focus on Apple Products. I am a keen musician, playing guitar, bass and drums alongside my flute.
