I have been playing music since the age of 5. I focussed my music to film studies at NFTS and was awarded a rare “Excellent” for my masters degree. I play a number of instruments (violin/viola/cello, flute, clarinet, guitars, dilruba, zither plus numerous oddities) and often incorporate improvisation and live experimental textures into my scores. I also have a keen love for electronic gadgets and manipulation should the story call for such styles. In 2018 I was nominated for a British Independent Film Award for the score to “I Am Not A Witch” directed by Rungano Nyoni (other nominees including Carter Burwell and Paul Weller!), the film went on to win a BAFTA for Outstanding Debut Feature film. Other notable awards are the BAFTA winning short animation “Sleeping with the Fishies” directed by Yousif Al-Khalifa and the student OSCAR winning musical animation “Miss Todd” directed by Kristina Yee. Musical collaborations and releases include the artists Coldcut, Vashti Bunyan, Lamb, Maribou State, Lucy Rose, Fink to name a few and working as assistant to Patrick Doyle.
