I’m a violinist, violist, composer and sound designer based in London. My music has featured widely on film, TV and radio. I’ve written and recorded music for many different production music companies including BMG, Gothic Storm, Colossal Trailer Music, Hybrid Core Music, Ghostwriter, JDM, Pheonician Order Music, Handmade Sounds, Elephant Music, Evolving Sound, Dos Brains, and Motus Music. My compositions have been published by Oxford University Press, Schott Music Ltd. and the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. My music has been performed in West End theatre and broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and 4. As a violinist I’ve performed extensively in the UK and abroad over the past 20 years, performing regularly in London West-End shows (including shows at the National Theatre, the Palladium, the Aldwich and the Phoenix Theatre), symphony orchestras, chamber orchestras, string quartets, jazz and world music bands. I’ve done a lot of recording sessions both in orchestras and as a soloist in studios such as Abbey Road and Air Studios; solo recording work includes Brian Ferry, David Gilmour, Robert Wyatt, Disney, Clint Mansell, Barnaby Taylor, BBC Strictly Come Dancing, BBC Radio 3.
I regularly do remote recording sessions for composers, production music companies and music supervisors around the world. I’m equally comfortable playing from sheet music, playing by ear, improvising or composing. I also arrange strings. Please email for information on fees and availability.
