I have been writing songs for over 20 years and singing and playing guitar since I was a child. I grew up in a family of writers and my mother was into the folk scene so we were either at poetry readings or folk clubs. I was destined to do something arty and so here I am today still writing songs and playing guitar. One of the most important influences for me was after I won a song writers competition for my song ""Pukerua Bay"", at the Auckland Folk festival in 1990. I won time in a recording studio where I recorded my first album ""Drifting at Whananaki"". The following year in 1991 at the Auckland Folk Festival, I came runner up for my song ""Totara Berry"" after my sister came 1st for her song ""Missing"". I was on my way as a young musician and have since completed a 3 year music diploma and 1st year university music paper where I learnt to read music and play basic piano. I recorded another album in 2004 called ""Metal Roads"" and have another album in the wings.
