I am a classically trained contemporary composer, collaborator and music educator based in Glasgow. I enjoy working on a wide range of projects and across art forms and recently won the 2015 Cottiers Chamber Music Composition Competition, performed by the RSNO (Royal Scottish National Orchestra) chamber ensemble. 2015 also saw my string quartet being shortlisted by the British Panel for World music day 2016. Recent commissions include a 35 minute composition for Marc Brew Dance Company new solo piece, premiering at Tramway in 2015, prior to a week at the Edinburgh fringe, Scottish tour and performance at Sadlers Wells, London, a SATB choral piece with solo clarinet for Old Saint Paul's, Edinburgh, a collaboration with London-based visual artist Rachel Gadsden, short film-maker Abigail Norris and cellist Lesley Shrigley-Jones, for "Al Noor - Fragile Vision" at Bluecoat Gallery, Liverpool, a choral piece for The Mackintosh Choir, Glasgow. Other recent commissions include a music/dance/ visual arts collaboration for National Paralympics Day in London and a string quintet for The Astrid Quartet for Edinburgh Fringe Festival part of Made-in-Scotland series.
