About

Thanks for visiting my website! Here you will find the productions that I am proud to have devised, directed, or helped develop into the shows they are today.

For over ten years I have focussed on integrating styles of music that I love with the orchestra; whether electronic, experimental, alternative pop, rock, or non-classical projects that simply take the orchestra somewhere new. Hopefully you can see that the productions here are very different, and are a step-up in how the orchestra can combine with electronics and synths, utilise amplification successfully, and integrate with visuals sensitively.  All of which is made possible with an amazing team especially conductor Jules Buckley with whom I co-founded the Heritage Orchestra. 

For those that want to know more about me...  I've worked in the orchestral, arts, and commercial music industries for around 12 years, and I have worked on special orchestral shows with the following artists:  Bjork, Giorgio Moroder, Aphex Twin, Goldie, Dizzee Rascal, Bryce & Aaron Dessner, Massive Attack, Antony & the Johnsons, Sparks, Tim Minchin, These New Puritans, The Leisure Society, Scanner, Mike Patton, Spiritualized, Ben Folds, Basement Jaxx, Anna Calvi, The Streets, UNKLE, Jamie Cullum, John Cale, Tim Exile, Pete Tong, Max De Wardener, Cinematic Orchestra, Gabriel Prokofiev, DJ Yoda, Beardyman, The Bays, and Amon Tobin.
