From 1991-1994 it was poetry and sitar that were my primary concerns as I stumbled around Surry Hills, Newtown, Petersham and Redfern in Sydney. I performed at the ‘What is Music’ festival in Sydney in 1995 at the Harbourside Brassiere. In 1995 I joined the performance art group Senslesss. We made huge metal sculptures and played them while accompanied by fire dancers, films, costume, instruments you could wear and acrobatics in art happenings and club parties.
In 1996 I hitchhiked around Tasmania on a 3 month busking tour with a friend. In 1997-98 I travelled to Europe and North Africa. In Morocco I experienced the music of the Berber and Ganoua. I lived as a street musician in Amsterdam for most of 1998.
I have also busked in Berlin, Barcelona, Paris and Stockholm. In 1999 returned to Australia and helped run a warehouse space for artists and musicians in Redfern, Sydney. In 2000 I moved to Sweden in the far north of the country. Since then I have played at festivals around the Sámi homelands of Lapland.
I completed a PhD in language studies in 2015 at Umeå University. I have released two solo CDs on the musicyourmindwillloveyou label. I play and recorded in the band 6majik9 which is based in Australia, featuring on their first two releases In Mara's Glove and The Human Hand, and In the Service of Mistress Cecily. I have been based in Stockholm since 2015, playing in various groups and as a solo artist and street busker.
