I believe that music is the future and we should let it lead the way. Show us all the beauty it possesses inside and give us a sense of pride. To make it easier we should let music remind us of how we used to be.

Quick Things

Born: 13th July 1989, St Albans, UK

Self taught composer & pianist.

Favourite film: "Marie Antoinette" by Sofia Coppola or "Weekend" by Andrew Haigh, or maybe Anna Kareina from Joe Wright. I love film, it is impossible for me to choose a favourite, but the above display a rawness, great design or reality. Along with good soundtracks, acting and ideas.

Favourite music: My most played song of all time is "Time of Our Lives" by Miley Cyrus and whilst my favourite music is pop (I know, hardly respectable) I live for film scores and my favourite pieces are "Time" by Hans Zimmer from Inception, "Dead Reckoning" by Clint Mansell from Smokin' Aces, and "Penelope's Theme" by Nathan Johnson from The Brothers Bloom. I could go on.

Favourite food: Lovin' Chinese inspired food at the moment. I try to cook all my meals from scratch and used to only make Italian, carb heavy type dishes but have moved on to lighter, simpler asian cooking.

All About Me

I have always been musical, from playing piano by ear when I was four, to playing and composing by ear now in my twenties. I wanted piano lessons at the start of my musical-ness but the teacher said my hands were too small. Couldn't fault her aptitude to ascertain that four year olds have small hands, but I still find it a ridiculous statement.

As a natural ability for music became prevalent I was afraid that a musical education would stifle my creativity. I have never had a lesson in music, I cannot read music of write notation. I love that everything you hear from me, is directly as I hear in my head, flowing through the keys into the computer where my musicality and technical aptitude collide to produce music.

I've been focussed on composing music since 2005. In 2012 I enjoyed my first experience as a professional composer; having my music used by some big name companies all over the world.

As I continue to work on new material I am inspired by comments that I receive from people who enjoy my work as something to listen to and not just as something to put to video.
