He filled-in the vacancy for drummer in the Brazilian band Cansei de Ser Sexy (CSS) when Adriano Cintra took the place of Iracema Trevisan as bassist, after she left in April 2008.

He attended the Forest School in Winnersh with the other original members of The Cooper Temple Clause band, with whom he grew up with in Reading. He has cited Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, dEUS, Sonic Youth, Primal Scream, Squarepusher, Miles Davis and Stevie Wonder as some of his main influences.
