I am a New Zealand born film and game composer living in Nelson, a small city which is at the top of the South island of New Zealand.
I completed a Masters in Fine Arts in Professional Media Composition specialising in Orchestration for Film, Games and Television and Video Game Composition at the University of Chichester Film Scoring School.
I have scored a number of short films and recently won an award for 'Best Original Score' for my work on 'Operation'.
I really enjoy working with a director to help them achieve a vision for the music which complements the film.
Another one of my favourite things is to improvise on and play hardware synthesizers, of which my Moog Matriarch is a particular favourite. I also enjoy playing Tango music including live solo performing at the New Zealand Tango Festival.
Music is a shared language and one of the things I enjoy most about media composition is one day you can be writing music for a game about Pirates, the next a game set in space or a comedy short film. It constantly challenges you to embrace all different kinds of variety and this in itself is very rewarding.
