From April 2005 to July 2007 I worked as a show band musician for Princess Cruises and Holland America cruise line. I was the guitarist for the main theatre orchestra playing for production shows and hundreds of guest entertainers like singers, virtuoso musicians, jugglers, comedians, magicians, and so on. I also did a large amount of solo Jazz guitar performing.
In September 2007 to December 2008 I returned to working as a guitar instructor at the Acoustic Music Shop in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. During this time I studied Classical guitar using the Canadian royal conservatory of music method, passing the grade 7 practical guitar exam. I also played in various music groups like a new age music project, a Pop/Rock cover band and an AC/DC tribute group.
I spent the majority of 2009 back with Princess Cruises as a show band guitarist and solo guitarist doing sets of solo Jazz or solo Classical guitar. I got the chance to play with a few celebrity entertainers like Johnny Thunder of the Drifters and Broadway, T.V. and Film star Adrian Zmed.
In early 2010 I relocated across the Atlantic ocean to live in Glasgow, Scotland. In the early summer I spent some time working as the guitarist for the Royal Court Theatre Orchestra on the Queen Mary 2 ocean liner. Since then I have been playing with various groups giging around Glasgow and the rest of Scotland. I currently play with the function band Magnitude.
