I am a classically trained composer with a special interest in chamber music, vocal writing and exploring narrative. I enjoy working in pure music and interdisciplinary contexts, and have a portfolio of commissions incorporating concert music, theatre, installation, opera and dance. My practice is research-led, and I favour composing in a way which allows me to explore history, folk culture, literature, visual art and environmental stimuli. Recently I have become increasingly drawn beyond the concert platform and seek opportunities to engage with the wider humanities and work within the context of a community. I have the expertise and motivation to be creative in isolation or in partnership with others, and to co-ordinate complex creative projects to brief, on time and in budget.
