As a musician, I work with directors, animation companies, game developers and many other artists 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).
I’m excited by new technology and am one of only a handful of composers working with a room-scale virtual reality setup and the ability to deliver in ambisonics format. This is handy when working on music for large VR game projects such as the cyber-punk RPG Augmented Empire or comedic They Suspect Nothing.
I've scored numerous short films and animations, including the multi-award winning Via, the charming Hoodoo 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) in the category ‘Best Wild Card Track’. In 2018 the piece was nominated a second time, but in the category of ‘Best Use of Production Music in Advertising’ for its role in the latest Audi A6 commercial. The track features a lives string orchestra.
Flagship shows like Panorama, Top Gear and Jeremy Kyle all regularly use my music in their shows in the UK and around the world. I wrote the title theme for BT Sport's, Last Week, This Week and the closing theme for Stephen Fry: Gadgetman (Sprout Pictures).
I've written advertising music for countless household brands including Disney, Beefeater, Cadbury, Clarks, Danone, Heinz, Lynx, Whiskas, The National Lottery, Kellogs, Dove, Vodafone and many others.
When I'm not working on commercial projects you might find me jamming it out in the studio, or out roller blading the streets of Walthamstow.
