About me

I was appointed Senior Lecturer in Music Technology – Composition and Performance (part-time) at UWE in May 2013; prior to this I was an Associate Lecturer, developing and teaching the Creative Music Technology Composition and Performance module since its inauguration in 2007.  I also work for the Open University and for Cardiff University Lifelong Learning.  I studied at Cardiff University and the Royal College of Music, and was awarded a PhD in Composition from Cardiff University in March 2010.

I am a composer, arranger and performer (horn, percussion and piano). My research consists of musical composition; recent premieres include Call for brass trio (USA), Spirit of Africa, commissioned by the Cheltenham Festival and Silver Rose, commissioned by Bristol City Council to commemorate the centenary of World War 1, and Mirage for the Norfolk Chamber Consort (USA).  Current and future projects include a 45 minute oratorio The Story of St Alban for the St Alban's Choral Society, a work which will be recorded by cornet player Jim Hayes and a new piece for the UWE Symphony Orchestra based on a 'green' theme.  I have also recently been working with OpenUp Music (www.openupmusic.org), the UK's first orchestras for disabled young musicians, and in May 2015  I was awarded a UWE Faculty of Environment and Technology Public Engagement and Outreach Award which will enable me to research repertoire and new composition for the inaugural South West Open Youth Orchestra in 2015/16.​
