About me & my work:

I've worked in the music industry for many years as an artist in bands also working as a session guitarist on the London session scene and composing for music publishers. Later moving to record producing and mentoring young artists. Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to work with legends such as David Gilmour and Paul McCartney through to modern acts like Hurts (via Tori Amos, Mark Almond, Howard Jones, Martin Grech and a bunch of others) . I have written soundtracks for TV , film and a-list commercials along with a major ballet score and several ‘left field’ commissions.

I recently discovered the medium of film and received an International film award for my first film. This extraordinary experience has led to a shift towards more philanthropic ideals and a determination to focus on work aimed at making things better for all. I am somewhat preoccupied with the subject of connection and the desire to see less fear in society. At present I’m working on my second film which focuses on what it is to be human and on the question, can our humanity keep pace with our technology?. I’m also working on a community choir project, mentoring and exploring the power of teaching.

Just a thought….

People who work within the arts like my self have disciplines that seem to be merging, which leaves me at a loss as to what to call my self as my work increasingly spans across them. In an attempt to clarify and liberate myself from these ‘labels’ I have decided to call myself simply an artist, who happens to be dead set on seeking connection, something of true value.
