I love my work! I studied at the Royal College of Music (violin and composition) and have always enjoyed variety in my music career. Writing and arranging for strings has ended up as my speciality, but via bands and radio commercials, music theatre (musical director for The Rocky Horror Show ’96 – ’99) and teaching.

I live in Manchester, UK with my son.

I use Neumann and AEA mics, into a Universal Audio Apollo X4,

recording in Logic on a Mac.  

I record with 12 violins and violas.


Here's a bit of video of a typical session at Realstrings.
