Sound Design and Composition

I have worked on various sound and music creation projects across different media including film, theatre and poetry. My home studio facilities - combined with my performance skills on multiple instruments and technical expertise - allow me to create sound design and composition projects through all stages to industry standard production quality. I am comfortable working in many styles and make a point of taking time to liaise with the creative team to serve the vision and direction of projects I am involved with.
