    I am a composer, music producer and live electronic sound artist and performer working across different disciplines.

    I am Senior Lecturer in Music Technology at UEL, and work as a composer and music director for the National Youth Theatre. My work includes studio recording, music production and songwriting, music composition and sound design for theatre and visual and interactive media, and live electronic performance and improvisation.

    Previously I have worked with the Drake Music Project (working with physically disabled musicians and artists), designed a sound installation at the Science Museum in London, designed and led Interactive House (an interactive multimedia education project with the National Trust), and composed music for About Collage (an exhibition at the Liverpool Tate, curated by Peter Blake).

    I have released live electronic music on Bead Records, with long time collaborator Philipp Wachsmann, with a future release due in Summer 2016. I have also performed as a drummer with live drum and bass band, London Elektricity Live.

    Currently I am writing and recording with Aruhan Galieva, and have begun a collaborative research project with a fine artist.

    I am a member of cross-disciplinary improvisation trio, RISK, featuring vioinist Philipp Wachsmann and painter Catherine Hope-Jones.

    Guy Harries (UEL / Trinity Laban) and I co-produced Sound, Body, Movement, a symposium exploring cross-disciplinary work between, dancers, visual artists, and sound artists.
