Currently based outside of Manchester (UK), I've been involved, one way or another, in film, television & interactive media since leaving University in 2014, graduating the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. This includes:

- From 2016, working closely with Ivor award-winning composer Ian Livingstone on a number of computer game projects, providing additional music, MIDI programming and arrangements for an assortment of AAA titles, including several recent instalments of the LEGO franchise​ ('DIMENSIONS, MARVEL SUPERHEROES 2, DC SUPER-VILLAINS').

- Working regularly alongside Emmy award-winning composer Barnaby Taylor, providing MIDI programming and additional arrangements for a multitude of nature documentary projects, highlights which include Disneynature's 'BORN IN CHINA', Sir David Attenborough's 'WONDER OF EGGS', and 5-part documentary series 'THE HIDDEN KINGDOMS OF CHINA'.

- Most recently, providing additional programming for the Disney 2020 release 'GODMOTHERED', score written by Oscar-winning composer Rachel Portman.

- Currently scoring various in-development computer game titles, including the VR Combat-Mech FPS 'IRON REBELLION' (Black Beach Studios), Neoteric Rites' narrative focused dark-adventure game 'GRUNND', and Division Games' competitive Western FPS, 'BLACK POWDER'.

As a composer outside of computer games/interactive media, I've provided music for variety of projects, most notably Chris Mul's 2018 Netflix thriller 'ASTRAL', starring Frank Dillane (Fear the Walking Dead) and Vanessa Grasse (Leatherface), and director Eva Lanska's award-winning drama, 'LITTLE FRENCH FISH'. Previous projects include Adam Awni's dark horror-drama 'BUNNY'. Channel 4's docu-drama 'THE ROCHDALE PIONEERS' and BAFTA Cymru award-winning documentary short, 'CAN i EMRYS'.
