I began piping at the age of fourteen in New England with PM Hector Cameron, then had tuition from different instructors in Arizona, California, Colorado, and Scotland. I had a successful competition career in the late 60s and early 70s which was curtailed by the need to earn a living, but returned full time to piping over twenty years ago. I have played for many notable people, including the Duke of Hamilton, the Mackintosh of Mackintosh, the MacBain of MacBain, and several other clan chiefs, as well as political and entertainment celebrities over the years.
