About me
Chorister at King's College Cambridge. Major music scholar at Sevenoaks School. Trinity College of Music and a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace. Took a dramatic turn, bought several tonnes of speakers from Earls Court Palace and the 'Valve Sound System,' and spent the rest of my 20s on the road; throwing 300+ events, tour managing for artists including Afrika Bambaataa, Prince Paul and DJ Krush, orchestrating for artists including Aaron Jerome (SBTRKT), managing DJ Vadim and working in technology, music management and labels. Long story short: discovered the possibilities of 3D interaction in music, founded Immersive Album & Immersive Construction, worked with leading artists (The Who, Grandmaster Flash) on immersive music presentations in VR and was acquired by MelodyVR to join the founders and lead their development, going on to acquire and merge with Napster, and growing the business from 3-250+ during tenure. Diverse experiences in music and the creative industries, a passion for breaking technologies and constant challenging of 'the possible'.
