Biography

I am a Sound Designer and Sound Artist working across theatre, abstract music and contemporary art - equally at home as part of a collaborative team on large scale productions or independently on solo commissions and always driven by a love of storytelling and immersive experiences.

My practice is broadly focused on source materials and the creative manipulation of their sonic qualities to create a richly textured soundscape. Mainly working with original field recordings but also adapting to whatever material feels most appropriate to the project.

As a Sound Artist I seek to compose soundscapes that encourage increased engagement with our acoustic environment.

As a Sound Designer, I adopt a holistic approach that includes content creation, show control programming, and playback system design.

You can find a full list of credits and a selection of portfolio material in the following pages of this website.
