About

Profile picture
I have been a musician practically all my life, but, I really sold my soul to the devil at the crossroads 18 years ago. Now, playing various instruments for a number of years does not make one a fantastic film composer on its own - a good set of ears and an in depth understanding and feel for emotional content is a big part of the job description.
‘Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.’ Frederic Chopin

Towards a new horizon, thank you Finland, chello Sofia. #composerlife #filmscoringacademyofeurope #amazingthingshappen
Thank you England for the past 8 years, I’ve met some ridiculously talented people, I have had the privilage to learn from said ridicilous people, I’ve had 2 feral kids thrust in to my life and a wealth of memories to boot. From all that, I am humble and filled with gratitude. Thank you for having me UK, Peace out.
Morning started with resoluting some pesky dominant 7th inversions, got me geek on😚 #theorygeek #musicnerds #composerlife
It was my pleasure to compose music for the BFI Film Academys films for the 4th year in a row, I am so very proud of these young film makers at the premiere. #localfilmmakers #composerlife #bfifilmacademy
My portable studio last, spent the entire night composing for the london 48h scifi challenge with @thejhfilm. Well worth the no sleep/drive to home/almost sleeping on the wheel -excitement. #onehellofafilm #composerlife #ilovemywork❤
