I’ve made musical sculptures for the Courtauld Institute, written music for the Rambert Dance Company, and had my Requiem performed at Somerset House.  My recordings have been broadcast at Tate Britian, Tate Modern the Hayward Gallery, Radio 3 and feature on numerous TV productions including the Apprentice, Coast and Horizon.


Since 2009 I’ve been exploring the potential of the toy instrument, the melodica, as a performer and instrument maker.  In 2015 I created the world’s first 3D printed melodica.


I’m interested in the intersection between music making and self development.  I teach piano, improvisation and composition in Central London
