For as long as I can remember I have always been involved in the creative and performing arts. I can vividly recall the day my school teacher mother brought home the Casio keyboard that her schools music department had just purchased. This amazing keyboard had a symphonic strings sound bank and the capacity to record a melody line over a chord progression. I was hooked and have been composing music with this amazing technology (eventually replacing the Casio with computers) ever since.
After high school I studied Drama and Dance and after graduating began working professionally in these fields. I continued to compose music for my own performance endeavours and began to be approached by my peers in the the performing arts to develop music and soundscapes for their projects. I discovered that I loved this collaboration process and began to focus more on music.
Around the same time a friend told me about the Tropscore competition where composers are given the same short film and compose a score to the picture. I discovered how satisfying it was to facilitate the nuances and emotions of a film with music and sound.
Since then I have been selected to participate in the prestigious ASCAP/NYU Film Scoring Workshop in New York City, completed a year long Music for the Media course from Thinkspace Education as well as short courses at the Victorian College of the Arts and Berklee Online. I have recently composed original music for Circus, Dance, Theatre, Film, Virtual Reality and a state government funded touring Puppet Show and am constantly looking out for my next exciting creative collaboration.
