"I am a composer, musical director and musician with many years of professional experience of working in theatre and on the concert platform, having composed over two hundred scores ranging from solo concert harp to full orchestra and choir. I greatly enjoy the collaborative process of theatre, and have a passion for working closely to text, believing that underscore can be a proactive and exciting tool in shedding light on meaning; and music can of course be transcendent, travel beyond meaning, detonate a theatrical moment in a way that nothing else can. I am also a very experienced song writer and have composed for a great number of musicals".
