Creativity has always been the central core of my life. In my final year at High School I won two prizes. One was for Art and the other for Music. I was told that I could only accept one of these, I had to choose. I chose and trained in Fine Art. I majored in Photography with Music and Film as subsidiary subjects. I have enjoyed a successful career working in the Visual Arts firstly through Photography and Art Direction and later lecturing and becoming Course Leader in digital design at a college in the south of England. Music was always an equal love and I continued working as a session musician but it was not my main focus until more recently. Whilst leading the Games Design course I became fully aware of the importance of music to the enhancement of a visual experience and so began writing original music as part of my Art Practice.
