Hi there, and welcome to my site-
I am a BAFTA nominated song-writer, a composer, string arranger and violinist. My music and songs have been featured in a wide array of international ad campaigns, TV shows and movies. I collaborate with many talented producers, singers, composers and writers in various musical styles. I use Logic X and specialise in strings and vocal production.
I was lucky to have inspirational music teachers and my education was filled with competitions, choirs, shows and orchestras. I was classically trained on piano, violin and recorder.
When I was 17 someone played me Bob Dylan's album 'Desire' and from then on I wanted to get into bands and studios. I played in a signed band for six years and toured all over the UK and USA. I also spent several years as a primary school music teacher and have always enjoyed giving private music lessons.
As a string arranger and player I have worked with Multi-million selling artists Nick Cave and Caro Emerald, as well as The Stereo MC’s, FINK, Orbital, The 88, Rubylux, Naomi Bedford, HoneyRyder, Jason Nevins, DJ Format and Del Amitri.
My songs have been used on many TV shows including Stranger Things, Black Mirror, Desperate Housewives, E!, Shameless, Showtime, Greys Anatomy, Degrassi, Men In Trees, The Ghost Whisperer, South of Nowhere, MTV, Wimbledon, Touch The Wall, Haze and the trailers for Disney’s Cars2 and Assassins Creed
I have had a number of releases in Japan and Europe, including a number 1 song for X-factor winner KATO in Belgium and the song for the first ever 360 degree interactive video on Youtube.
I have just finished co-scoring a 52 part children’s series for CBeebies Worldwide called Kit and Pup. I amd also working on songs for upcoming BBCScotland production, Molly and Mack. I have recently written songs and music for CBeebies new show Tee & Mo with BAFTA winning animation company Plugin Media and for CBeebies in house production Feeling Better. I have also written songs for Sesame Street, Milkshake TV, Tiny Pop and various children’s animations. My animated children’s song ‘Are we ready to go?’ won a 2016 award at the international festival Prix Jeunesse, and the animated song 'Come on, Get Up' received a 2016 BAFTA nomination for best children's shortform.
I enjoy performing with Worthing Philharmonic Orchestra and continue my private study of Grappelli style gypsy jazz on the violin.
