I’m an experienced composer and orchestrator for film, TV and theatre.

I write in a range of styles, from classical, through jazz, to electronic, and working with sounds made by machine or by people.

Some of my music is below (or listen on soundcloud).

I’ve also arranged horns, strings or the entire band for various groups and artists (listen on soundcloud), and have written around 30 charts for big band.
