I count myself lucky to have had tremendous musical influences as a youngster, including the composers Ruth Gipps and Norman Kay, who provided me with one of my first experiences of conducting. I later studied under Peter Aston who steered my path towards writing choral music.

Since then my music has been performed across the UK and Europe, by choirs of every age and standard, which is testament to my style of modern contemporary, yet accessible, composition. 

"His ability to create a well balanced, evocative, cleverly written and luminous score, mark him out

as a composer with great skill, emotional depth and sensitivity."
