I am an Actor Musician, Composer and Musical Director. 

I have a passion to break new ground in the development of actor musicianship in the UK. I work extensively alongside Dumbwise theatre company to write and produce new actor musician work.

Professional MD credits include “Matchgirls the musical” (Wilton’s Music Hall) “Faust”(National tour) - a new actor musician musical for which he also wrote an award-winning score, and “When you hear my voice”(St. James theatre, Malta) - a new musical created with the inmates of a juvenile prison in Malta.

Other recent composer credits include a commission to write an original score for English National Ballet, for a new short ballet at the Barbican in London to commemorate the centenary of WWI.

I am also a  singer-songwriter and can often be found gigging both in and out of London.
