I became a musician because I have always loved the magical power of communication that music is capable of. But it was the communication between music and moving image that added for me a very special excitement and power.

When I first heard the soundtracks of composers such as James Horner, James Howard, David Arnold, Jerry Goldsmith, Thomas Newman, Inon Zur, Jesper Kid, Enio Morricone, Alan Silvestri and Hans Zimmer I knew that music composition for films, TV multiple media was the medium I wanted to use to communicate.

I love creating a music narrative that blends beautifully not only with the images, but that can also communicate something about characters, about the story, about a culture, or about the world real or fantasised.  

My latest projects include feature films Sustain; You Are My Sunshine; Clownface; Carnival of Sorrows, TV Series Theosight and shorts films Snarl; Safe To Assume; Once An Old Lady Sat On My Chest.

Apart from my activity in the industry I also work as senior lecturer in film music composition at Leeds College of Music.
