"City of stars
Are you shining just for me?"

Downtown, Los Angeles, 2018

Each time I'm at the rodeo, I chip away another chunk of marble and more of me is revealed. I call myself a composer, but more than the jingles, theme tunes and commercials I'm asked to pen, it's my ability to offer creative solutions to the mix. I'm not afraid of long-form work, I have staged musicals in pubs, historic music halls and cruise ships! I have composed for games and choirs, pop groups and podcasts. Having a masters degree in musical theatre is useful - I understand musical storytelling - oh and choreography, costumes and plenty of make-up!

Loft living in Downtown Los Angeles has given me a muse; the abandoned movie palaces on Broadway are achingly romantic, like decaying Venetian palaces, reminding us of a time when folks wore hats and gloves - yes in LA!

Currently, working with Fusion Media on their podcasts and Upright Citizens Brigade on the Quick and Funny Musical Show is honing my understanding of co-creating in the moment, often without a script but with faith that the words and the music are present. These acts of creativity are instrumental in polishing the marble of my imperfect perfection.

Check out my reel, I'm open for business you can contact me here and please, check out my podcast! 

 
Los Angeles, give me some of you! Los Angeles come to me the way I came to you, my feet over your streets, you pretty town I loved you so much, you sad flower in the sand, you pretty town!
