 I started making modern guitars in 1992. In 1994 I began a three year apprenticeship at West Dean College under the supervision of Martin Haycock and Roger Rose. During this time I acquired many skills and much knowledge in the making, history and styles of the lute family, renaissance and baroque guitars and other early plucked instruments.

        The majority of my time at West Dean was spent either working at the bench either making, repairing or setting-up instruments. I also spent time visiting museums and private collections both in the United Kingdom and Europe studying original instruments.
