As a record producer and sound engineer he has worked with some of the biggest names in Australian music and has mentored Screaming Jets, Silverchair and many other aspiring Novocastrian musicians. 

He is a respected educator and continues to inform the public about all things musical through regular radio programs on ABC Radio, and occasional lectures at the Newcastle Conservatorium of Music.

His collaborations with Australian and international musicians have produced a unique catalogue of instrumental guitar albums issued as Steelville Cats and Surfcats.
