I began playing the drum kit from a young age, joining acts around the North-East of England where I grew up. What started out as a hobby, however, soon turned into an exciting career.
Relocating to Manchester, then London, allowed me to grow as a composer and multi-instrumentalist, showcasing my ability by performing with some extremely talented artists and receiving a number of commissions to create works for reputable organisations. This included generative music, interdisciplinary collaborations, sound art installations and music for film, commercials and documentaries.
In 2016, I gained the necessary qualifications to teach music in compulsory and further education. Since qualifying, I have guest-lectured at several universities around the UK and have travelled through South-East Asia and Australia.
While based in Australia, I continued playing as a session musician around Sydney and Melbourne, and taught at a variety of private and public schools.
