A university graduate from Glamorgan university, I achieved a 2.2 BA Hons in Popular Music. My dissertation was about the interactivity of music within interactive media, however focusing on video games composition in particular. Through the past 2 years I have worked on a few different projects ranging from side scrolling shooters (Ragnarok Arena Remastered), first person shooters (Fps Terminator) and fun platformers (Thread Bear). All projects with different needs and styles. With the compositional experience in composing for multiple different genre of games and projects I am able to compose in any style or genre. With over 6 years of experience in musical education including school, college and university and not only working within the indie games industry but also 2D animation cartoons I am able to adapt to any and all types of media. If you are interested in my services for commercial or none commercial productions please do not hesitate to contact me.

So I have been working my socks off on composing some music for Universe Alliance and I am pleased with what I have so far. It is just some small ideas that probably will be altered but it gives all you folks something to listen to and I want to keep you all informed of the progress the game is making. I recently got to hook up with Stefan from the Blackheartgames team, he has been working on a mind blowing menu screen for the game and asked me to compose a short piece to go with the menu, I posted it up on my profile so you can all take a gander and check out some of the other ideas I have been having for the game itself. The game is going to have a series of short films as well which I am looking forward to composing the music for and cant wait to get started on that.
I will be working on a few more pieces over the next few weeks and once they are up and going I will post them up so you can check them out!
Any way keep it real people.
