Turn on the TV – youʼll hear a lot of samey wallpaper music and tired samples. I aim to provide something different. Wherever possible I use real, organic, locally sourced instruments and musicians (recorded at my well-equipped home studio running Logic). I then aim for the highest standards of composition, but always in service of whatʼs on screen.

I have wide experience as a composer, songwriter, arranger and multiinstrumentalist. I play a number of instruments from very well to rather badly: the non-rusty ones include guitar, violin, mandolin and flute.

Why else might you want to work with me? I love great film and great TV, and am fluent in screen history, theory and mechanics – from visual language and sound design to character and story arc. I feed this knowledge and passion, along with my musical instincts into the collaborative process.

Recently, I have completed the highly regarded MA course in Music Composition for Film and Television at Bristol University. My base is Bristol (southwest England) with regular travel to London.
