Thank you for visiting my official site.
Drawn mostly to character-driven, and therefore emotive and dramatic projects, I get to utilise my classical sensibilities often. However, as you'll hear on both the film and classical pages, I also have a passion for fusing classical with electronic music. Writing across many genres demands a broad scope of musical understanding and appreciation. I very much hope all this comes across in what you listen to here.
I have been privileged to have worked on over 80 screen projects as a composer, including award-winning independent feature films, short films, and TV credits including documentaries and promotional work. I have collaborated with directors from all over the world, including France, Africa, Spain, Malaysia, Austria and Thailand, and my music has been on many platforms including Sky One, Sky Sports and Sky News,
Channel 4, Sky Arts, Netflix, TV Monde5, Seven Network (Australia) and through on-demand portals including Apple Music, Spotify, Google, Youtube, Amazon Music and SoundCloud. I have also had my classical works performed around the country from choral works in Guildford Cathedral, large orchestral works for choral societies, to the Cochrane Theatre working with the Royal Ballet School.
You'll find examples of my work within the pages here, including movie soundtracks, compilations, videos and upcoming screenwriting projects. My full bio is below.
Please feel free to reach out via the contact page. I hope you enjoy your experience here.

CLASSICAL COMPOSER NEWS
After almost a ten year break, I am embarking on a new classical project for full orchestra.
While I regularly write classical music for films,
I find it a very different discipline writing for the concert hall.
I'm excited to be back at it and look forward to sharing more in the future.
You can listen to some past classical works on the 'Listen Classical Page'.
