I am an experienced cinematic and video games composer and sound designer who creates bespoke audio tailored to clients needs. I have worked on commercials aired on Sky Movies, award winning films, animation and games. I have an MA in Professional Media Composition. I do voiceovers for TV and games on occasion and have a UK accent. I compose in a diverse range of styles, from simple and beautiful piano, to epic orchestral, to EDM, rock and urban beats. A number of films I have composed for have won awards, including 'the pirate boy' which was short listed in the New Zealand Film Commission 10k Fresh Shorts scheme 2014, and 'Kia ora Miguel' which won the Short Film Otago award and Reading Cinema's Best New Short Award 2014. I work quickly and communicate impeccably throughout the process, sending several drafts of my work along the way for approval, so there are no surprises and my clients needs are met to the highest standard. You can view my showreel below. Thanks for watching!
