By the age of nine years I was in love with making noises and writing them down and I’ve happily continued until the present. Growing up in Ayrshire, being involved in music scenes like vibrant Indie bands to passionate folk clubs, in parallel to a love of improvisation from jazz guitar and the construction of classical music. All these ingredients culminate in a composer with such an eclectic output from concertos to charity projects like working with punk band Lethema.

A mentee of Sir James MacMillan, with whose guidance I’ve had the pleasure of a commission of a guitar concerto for the Scottish guitarist Sean Shibe, with a world premier at the Cumnock Tryst music festival 2017 and with its north American premier on March this year. I have also had amazing invitations to compose for the Hebrides ensemble and the wonderful Drake Music Scotland’s Digital Orchestra. With also an opportunity to compose for the classical guitarist Christopher Parkening of which I composed a sonata.
