I'm an author/illustrator by day (based in London, UK). By night and tea-break I build and play instruments.
I’ve been tinkering with instruments in one way or another since I was 12 years old. Even younger if you go by the photographic evidence.

I have, by now, just about worked out which way round to hold them, and these days I mostly play Nyckelharpa and banjo.

Recently I started to take the building of banjos more seriously than the couple of kits and restorations that I had done over the years.
