Education

About me

Hello, I am a composer for film, TV and visual media. I was born in Cape Town and raised in Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, before completing my education in the UK.

I am now based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and for London, UK. I studied under Giles Swayne and Robin Holloway, and had consultations with Samuel Adler, John Hopkins, and Jeremy Thurlow at the University of Cambridge and completed my masters in Film and TV Composition at the University of Bristol in the UK.

My journey through music has led me out to South-East Asia where I am composer in residence for Digipost global.

I have experience writing music for many forms of multimedia. This includes feature length and short films, documentaries, TVCs and online content. I also work as an audio engineer and sound designer.

Always happy to discuss new projects. Please get in touch via a PM on soundcloud, the email on my website or via Facebook.
