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 officially be employed 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.
A recent position at Cervo Media involved the creation and end-to-end production of music for games installed on well over 100 million devices around the world.
Having graduated with an M.A. in Orchestration in 2019 I’m now working with various production companies and contributing to the success of an adaptive audio technology firm.

In an attempt to better understand the orchestral music of Ravel I spent rather a long time programming Une Barque Sur L’Ocean into Sibelius and having it play back with VST instruments (This is not a Mock-Up, just a way to demonstrate how Sibelius plays VSL libraries):
