CREATIVE

I write and record music. As a creative outlet, and a means of commenting on the world around me, it helps make sense of things. Here you'll find my solo recordings.

PRODUCTION

As a producer and sound engineer I'm lucky enough to combine performance, composition and arrangement into one activity that intersects creativity and technical proficience.

COMMERCIAL

I compose music for film, and for radio & TV commercials. I aim for precision, responding exactly to needs of the film, or the message. I'm diverse and adaptable.

HI THERE

I work with music as a vehicle for communication and expression across multiple media and creative disciplines. I work mainly from my studio in Brisbane where I co-write and produce with a diverse range of artists, from alternative country to electonic and music for moving image.

Raised on soggy Weet-Bix and upright piano, I decided fairly young that music was what I wanted to do. I had a piano teacher who let me cry over learning Christmas carols, but did help me win my first eisteddfod.

Later I had lessons with an eccentric Dutch multi-instrumentalist. He encouraged me to write better music by ripping my ideas to shreds in order to expose the good stuff. I think I've held onto those skills because I discard more than I keep.

I've played in bands around Brisbane for a while. Sometimes it's been my own music with the likes of Manzuma or Ionesco, and other times I've played live with people like Scott Spark, Ektoise, Rise Overrun and Dane Adamo.

In between playing and producing my own or others' music, I've scored several short films. The most notable was one called True Love. It starred Jamie Dunn (yep, Agro) and won a bunch of awards at the Queensland New Film Makers Awards.

I'm currently - and very self-consciously - showing off my second solo work. It's an EP called Plural that has 4 pieces on it. I hope you like it.

When not immersed in music I fulfil servant duties to my cat.
