About me

I have worked in music for just over a decade, initially working in management, then being signed as a recording artist. I have spent the last 4 and a half years as a freelance composer and songwriter for production music, bespoke advertising and commercial releases. I mostly write for Sony ATV/EMI and my main area of focus is pop in it’s broadest sense, from Indie Rock to RnB to bubble gum pop. This year I have been nominated for the Best Trailer Music Award at the Production Music Awards for my collaboration with Harry Lightfoot and Sabrina Altan. 
I have a proven track record of using my initiative, working under pressure and to incredibly tight deadlines, resulting in successes for myself and my clients. Problem solving is an area in which I pride myself on, whilst I consider myself to be a highly capable and a self motivated individual.
