At 18 years of age, I was working in a cubicle in an average office.  No way was it how I wanted to spend my life. I wanted to do what I loved, making music, and so I gave myself until I was 25 to make something happen. I woke up on my 25th birthday lying on the sofa in the studio,  after a night out with the band I was recording an album with, and I thought “I’m doing alright at this, i’ll keep going!”.

I was signed to Ministry of Sound in 2006.  All of a sudden I was working with DJs and Producers such as Tall Paul, Brandon Block and Chicane. I was remixing for Fedde Le Grande, William Orbit and Armin Van Buuren to name a few. It was the dream.

Since then I have focussed my superpowers on writing music for picture, utilising all the electronic/orchestral skills I have learnt on my journey.  

I went from sitting behind an office desk to doing what I love doing more than anything else in the world, crafting music to move human souls.  If you like the sound of that, then let’s connect and create something awesome together.
