Loves his family, children, walking, travel (but not a fan of flying), football, reading, making music – of course; Old valve amplifiers, bass guitars, pedals and effects, music technology, writing, learning new things, meditation, mindfulness and so much more.
“Tone down, but don’t turn down the real you. Turn up the volume. Use your talent to infinity and beyond. You will inspire others to do the same.”
