I studied music at Cambridge University and continue to study privately with composer Raymond Yiu. While at university, I won the ‘young composer of the year’ award at The Edinburgh International Harp festival. My work has since been performed at the Barbican, LSO St Luke’s, Kilkenny Arts Festival, the Sónar music festival in Barcelona, and the Mona Bismarck American Center in Paris.

A live performance of my piece ‘Suspensions & Solutions’ for bass viol and electronics was broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in January 2018 and I recently wrote the music for a new production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at The Courtyard Theatre, London. Other recent highlights include assisting Nico Muhly on his opera ‘Marnie’ at the ENO and working as Music Editor for his score for the BBC1 mini-series ‘Howards End’, which was shortlisted for a BAFTA for best original score.

My latest piece will be premiered by The Hermes Experiment at Cafe OTO, London, in May 2018, and I'm currently working on a new piece for The Ligeti Quartet.

I'm originally from Pembrokeshire in Wales and now live in London.
