I am a versatile and

experienced composer with over fifty

credits in award-winning film, television and video

games. As a multi-instrumentalist with a varied musical background,

my diverse career has covered comedy, horror, documentary and more. This includes

long-running animated series for some of the biggest kids' brands in the world such as Peppa Pig,

Strawberry Shortcake, Peanuts and Polly Pocket. Projects I have scored have been broadcast on Cartoon Network,

PBS, iPlayer, Amazon Prime, HBO Max, France TV as well as numerous film festivals worldwide. You can listen to some samples

of my work over at my portfolio and releases pages.


When approaching a new composition, I work most effectively by simply sitting at my keyboard and playing, moulding ideas by ear. This process is informed by my experience as a performer on tenor and baritone saxophone, acoustic and electric guitar, piano, and percussion/drums. I relish pushing creative and technical limits to ensure each project's soundtrack is the best it can be.

I graduated from the University of Bristol with an MA in Composition for Film and Television in 2017 and a first class honours Music BA in 2014, specialising in composition and performance. I am a BAFTA Connect member and was a jury member for the Royal Television Society's West of England awards in 2023. I live and work in Birmingham, playing percussion in the Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra and arranging film screenings as a Senior Programmer with community cinema Screen B14.
