Welcome to my website. I'm a pianist, composer and sound artist. Here you can find out a bit about what I do and what I'm up to at the moment, as well as hearing some of my music. I'm always striving to create music that touches me, and I hope it moves you too.

Mastering the album

Had a fantastic experience mastering my forthcoming album on Friday with Henry Buckle at Loma Capiro, London. With the combination of Henry's expertise and some analogue and digital tools, we managed to really enhance the sonics and soul of the music. I can't wait to share it – more details soon.
