I am a film/tv/media composer and songwriter. Originally classically trained, with a Masters degree in electroacoustic composition, I have turned my hand to composing soundtracks in many different styles: classical, jazz, pop, rock, fusion and electroacoustic.

I composed the soundtrack to a short film called Dog Days, for Stephen Galloway - an independent director in Hollywood. This was shown as part of the LA Film Festival, and my score in particular received excellent feedback from people at The Hollywood Reporter. In the meantime, please look at my videos and watch "What Makes Flying So Easy?" and "Galapagos", for which I wrote an original soundtrack to some footage of the BBC TV series.

Among my commercial releases is the soundtrack to one of the biggest-selling fitness DVDs of 2005, Total Fitness In 12 Minutes A Day. This required an upbeat techno track and also a more ambient track. Such was the DVD's success that it was re-released at the end of 2008.
I've also played keyboards, sax and clarinet for the London-based band Fourth Inversion, for whom I also co-wrote much of the material. I continue to play live for Ammonite (see their site in myspace).
I also perform regularly with the London Philharmonic Choir, both nationally and internationally. We recently took part in the hugely popular Dr Who Prom in July 2008, performing the music of Murray Gold. 2009 will see us performing extensively at the Royal Festival Hall with Vladimir Jurowski.
Thanks for your interest,
