As a musician, I work with directors, animation companies, game developers and others to support their stories with sound. I use a blend of live instruments and samples in my work and aim to create a fresh palette of sounds for each project. For me, making music is about staying playful, exploring new sounds and techniques, and being truthful to the narrative. In some ways my process hasn't moved on much from banging pots and pans aged 6 (but fewer broken chopsticks).
My music has been used around the world in shows like Top Gear, Panorama and Jeremy Kyle. Other TV credits include the title theme for BT Sport's, Last Week, This Week and the closing theme for Stephen Fry: Gadgetman (Sprout Pictures).
I've created music and sounds for 40+ mobile and indie games. From 2016-2017 I worked as an in-house composer for Coatsink Software. I recently composed the score for Augmented Empire (Gear VR): a story driven tactical RPG featuring the voice acting talents of Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) and Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek Voyager, Orange Is the New Black).
I've written advertising music for many household brands including The National Lottery, Beefeater, Cadbury, Clarks, Danone, Heinz, Lynx, Whiskas, Disney, Kellogs, Dove, Vodafone and others.
I've also scored numerous short films, including the charming Hoodoo by Blue Zoo which was nominated for a VR Award at Tacoma Film Festival and Pukka's 9-1 GCSE grading film which won a silver Evcom screen award.
In 2016 I was nominated for a Production Music Award for the track Seconds Into Hours (Cavendish Music) which featured a live string orchestra.
When I'm not working on commercial projects I enjoy learning new instruments, teaching, jamming and taking on a side-project or two.
