About Me


I was born in Switzerland.  I have always had an interest in music, in particular, the classical  guitar.  At the age of 16 I travelled to the South of France where I met Manitas de Plata.  This started my love of flamenco music.


I am a qualified, Swiss trained toolmaker and gunsmith.  Both of these trades have provided me with the essential skills required to produce high quality workmanship.  I have always been creative, and enjoy making things by hand and I am also an artist specialising in watercolours.


I moved into making guitars 16 Years ago.  Since that time I have made many Flamenco, Classical and some Electro Acoustic Guitars, Harp Guitars and Ukuleles.I have recently received a commission to build a Stradivarius Style Cello and Violin.

I also do a bit of woodturning  with some success.



My aim is to make Instruments of high quality, playability and sustain.
