  • About me

    I am a composer and musical director with a particular interest in music and theatre which break down typical formal boundaries. Whilst studying music at Cambridge University, I have brought both my creative mind and my ear for detail to the Cambridge Footlights Pantomime as composer/MD, and the Musical Theatre Society, for which I was Musical Director of Rust the Musical.

    Additional Skills

    I am a multi-instrumentalist playing primarily saxophone, piano, and clarinet. I also play flute, guitar and bass.

    I also have an interest in music technology, including Reaper DAW, and CSound programming for software synthesis.
