Composition

Opera

I have written five operas. Two youth operas - "The Whalsavers" and "The Fizz" for W11 Opera; the chamber opera "Dr Quimpugh's Compendium of Peculiar Afflictions" which was nominated for a Fringe First Award in 2012; "Skitterbang Island" an early years puppet opera; and most recently the podcast opera "Road Memoir".

Theatre

I have created music, songs and sound for a large number of theatre productions. It is always a thrilling and fascinating experience that calls for all kinds of ingenuity and sonic adventure.

Dance

I spent five formative years as Music Librarian of the Royal Ballet. Watching, listening and spending my lunchtimes poring over the great ballet scores. I later had the great fortune to compose the scores for five dance-theatre works by Will Tuckett. The first of these "The Wind in the Willows" went on into the West End and to an Olivier Award.
