With the offer of a scholarship to Sydney Conservatorium of Music, he began full-time studies with acclaimed Spanish guitarist Antonio Losada (a distinguished pupil of Andres Segovia). He later continued further study in Spain with guitar masters Narciso Yepes and Jose Tomas and then began a professional music career with a variety of concert, recording, and teaching activities in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

He has also worked in the studio session field in various musical styles, as well as completing arranging and composition commissions for radio, television, and independent film productions.
