EJ began the pipes at age 11, has been in the prize lists of the U.S. Piping Foundation and the Nicol-Brown Chalice, and is now an EUSPBA professional grade piper. As well as the Great Highland Pipes, EJ also plays flute, whistles, bombarde, border pipes, Uilleann pipes and Scottish smallpipes - and sings and dances. A founding member of the band Clandestine, EJ wrote and performed tunes with them from 1991 through 2003 and later reformed the band in 2006. He performs regularly with the bands The Rogues and Jiggernaut, though has also played with Seven Nations, Turlach Boylan, Cluan, Glen Road, Istanpitta, Richard Kean, Ed Miller, Sarah Dinan and Tartanic. Most recently, EJ went to the World Pipe Band Championships with his Grade 2 pipe band, the St Thomas Alumni Pipe Band, and the band took 2nd place!
