About me
I’m a London based composer and sound designer. I’m highly enthusiastic and dive into projects with ease. One of my key strengths is the ability to approach any situation with a creative and “out-of-the-box” perspective. I enjoy projects where I’m composing music to video content. I write music using hardware synthesizers and sampled homemade instruments. Recent work include composing runway music for LFWM designer Liam Hodges, co­-producing music for ‘Little Things’ on Netflix and ‘Zero KMS’ on ZEE5 India. I write music that I love and I’m passionate about telling stories through the use of sound. When not on a job I work on my own projects; including making music with an indie band called Pure Youth.

    RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY/DATA DISKS: DIGGIN' IN THE CARTS - YUZO KA Red Bull Music Academy sponsored event. The brief was to create a live visual interactive installation for the Data Disks DJ set. Using a combination of eight CRTVs and a bespoke audio reactive solution to process the set it was possible to create a glitchy and retro, yet modern twist on arcade visuals. The installation was shown after an interview with Yuzo Koshiro, the composer known notably for the music from the Streets of Rage series.
  • Netflix | Dice Media: Little Things
    Netflix | Dice Media: Little ThingsLittle Things is a Netflix series about a young couple and the small, seemingly inconsequential moments experienced in their everyday life. The brief set by the Director was to create a simple but meaningful and emotive score. We exchanged original music back and forth, exploring various sonic soundscapes that complimented the imagery onscreen until the music aligned with the core themes of the show.
