He plays with all the major London orchestras as guest principal horn.
He has played on countless film scores, TV shows and recordings of rock and pop music.
He has been honoured with a Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Music and has given workshops and masterclasses at all the British music conservatoires. He has been professor of horn at both the Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, London.
