Born in Boston UK, I started playing piano at the age of six, by the age of ten I was accomplished in trumpet and French horn, which I went on to study alongside keyboard at the Royal College of Music, London, winning prizes for writing and performance.
First job out of college was Music Directing with the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain with the late great Ed Wilson who, before his death, moved to LA to direct the California Youth Theatre - vocal coaching students including Daniel Craig and Jessica Stevenson amongst others. Within a couple of years I was conducting the BBC Singers for R4 Live Daily Service from All Souls Langham Place and MD'ing various R2 sessions from BBC Maida Vale studios.
Over the past 10 years I have been composing, arranging and producing for BBC and Independents. Compositions & arrangements commissioned over the past couple of years have been for a wide range of artistes, orchestras and groups including Katherine Jenkins, Russell Watson, Willard White, Jocelyn Brown, Glen Campbell, BBC Philharmonic, Lesley Garrett, Ruthie Henshall, Fine Arts Brass, Aled Jones, Elin Manahan Thomas, Lexie Stobie.
Other highlights include Music Producing Antonio Pappano's debut 'Madama Butterfly' at ROH Covent Garden for BBC TV.
