I'm very grateful for the love and support given to me by my beautiful wife Emily. This is us on our wedding day back February 2002. She is the best thing that's ever happened to me, along with the birth of our daughters, and the most wonderful mother you could ever imagine!

Here we are back in 2002 at the Hollywood Bowl.

I met Emily through her father, the late great Roger Frampton. I studied with Roger whilst at the Con in 1988/89 and continued to play with him over the next few years. One of the most memorable occasions was with jazz legend, Lee Konitz. Ironically, it was at a benefit for Roger, when he was diagnosed with cancer in 1999 that I met Emily. This is a shot of Roger and me taken during the filming of a TV show called I Do I Do. This is the only photo I have of Roger and me together.

On May 30 2004, my wife gave birth to our first beautiful daughter Mabel Grace Rytmeister. Here are some snaps from her first year.

At play......

Then on November 15 2006, we were over the moon to welcome into the world a beautiful little sister for Mabel, Mollie Elise Rytmeister. So below are some pictures from Mollie's first 6 months.
