I’ve been involved in music creation for longer than I’d care to remember. The first job I ever applied for back in the ’80s was to create music for games by the Sheffield based company Gremlin Graphics. I was too young to work at that time, but received some solid feedback.
The years in between have seen me performing in many groups, in genres as diverse as Punk, Rock, Metal, Classical, Jazz and Soul. I graduated from the City of Leeds College of Music with a B.A. Hons in Jazz Studies in ’97. Following this I balanced a full time day job in I.T. whilst teaching, performing writing and producing music in my free time. I’ve taken instruction from some of the most respected names in the various music industries and have developed a large personal network of fellow musicians. I’m very grateful for all the opportunities I’ve had with which to expand my musical abilities and very excited about what opportunities await me.
My most recent position at Cervo Media involved the creation and end-to-end production of music for games installed on well over 30 million devices around the world.
I’m currently refining my composition and orchestral mock-up skills with an aim to securing work in the Games, Film and T.V. industries.

I’ve been passionate about piano music for many years, and have been fortunate enough to have received tuition from some incredible individuals.
