I am 40 years old and have been working in the creative industries for nearly 20 years now! I’m a family man blessed with 5 kids and a talented musical wife to share the journey with.
I was born in Blackburn, Lancashire into a very quiet world due to profound deafness. It was corrected by an operation when I was 4 years old and ever since then music and sound has always fascinated me. My ears took the lead on what became an aurally led musical journey.
I studied on the Lancashire Music Foundation course which introduced me to a world of musical amazingness and to the world of Music Production! I studied Piano, Trumpet, Voice and Music Production but I decided very early on that I would be travelling the production road and luckily nearly 20 years on I’m still doing what I love. I have written music for digital media, theatre, film and TV.
As creative types do I have also ventured into the world of tuition, graphic design, video production, theatre and IT.
I managed an IT department in the early 2000’s and was responsible for the building and repair of thousands of pc’s
In 2005 I created the first West Highlands RocksKool group for young people, based in Kinlochleven High School, and it is still going strong some 15 years later.
I have worked as a professional actor and toured with Eden Court Theatre and Bright Productions on several occasions
In 2008/09 I designed and led a new music department and micro studio for our local college based in Fort William.
As a result of my colourful and exciting past I have an vast array of skills I can apply that fit perfectly into the fast moving world of production & digital creativity.
I look forward to working with you.
