I've been a practicing musician for a little over a decade, and during that time I've been fortunate enough to have had a broad range of experiences working in professional studios and various performance spaces as an instrumentalist, producer and audio engineer, both in the U.K and elsewhere. I've been sporadically composing my own music for a number of years, whilst always endeavouring to work with others on musical projects when I can. Following my passion has led my work to expand through music and into creative research, audiovisual art installations, photography and videography, allowing me to invest a lot of my time in arts-based projects.
I graduated from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) with a first class degree in Music Production in June 2016, and I consider the three years I spent as an undergraduate student to be some of the most important I've had in terms of developing myself as a creative practitioner. During my second year at UCLan, I was successful in my application to join an internal, charity-based research project called the Global Sound Movement, with whom I travelled to Uganda and Cyprus to work with local musicians in an endeavour to create original sample packages. Ultimately, this led to me having the opportunity to remain at UCLan as a postgraduate student and work as part of the Media Innovation Studio team, where I'm currently conducting research into how diverse collections of music can be transmitted through various online settings.
