I am a London based composer, songwriter and music producer. I create commissioned scores, songs and theme music for film, television and branded content. I also contribute to production music libraries, make records and license my own catalogue for soundtrack use.

Work includes score and theme music for the 200 episode landmark BBC children series Waybuloo; theme songs for Nickelodeon, Disney & Penguin Books and the Channel 5/Nick Jr show Wissper ; feature film scores for the leading documentary strand Storyville; and brand communications for corporate clients such as Louis Vuitton, London Business School, Ben & Jerry’s and BAFTA.

My varied practice encourages a rich cross-fertilisation of ideas, process and collaborators. I believe that each film, song and recording has a unique musical identity. I work with you to create it.

I have over 17 years experience composing for picture and a further five years experience in entertainment development. I have lectured on music for picture at the National Gallery London and been profiled by Televisual Magazine.

Yet the most impressive element of Waybuloo is its wonderful, tinkling music.
The Radio Times

Children’s TV doesn’t get much bigger then Waybuloo.
The Telegraph

A sparse but rhythmic electro score somehow evokes an equine viewpoint.

A remarkably odd score that actually sounds like a horse’s idea of music.

Intensely strange and fascinating ; resonant music cues.
