He is the author and creator of a number of internationally touring music-theatre works that include ‘Adam’s Apple’ (2004 UK, USA) Johnny’s Midnight Goggles (2007 – 10 UK, USA, India, Eire) and Finkelstein’s Castle (2009 – 10 UK, USA, India).

He is known for innovative practice including the creation of ‘time-structured mapping’ a system that has been used for combining seemingly disparate musical forces such as with the hour-long ‘Insomnia Poems’ for BBC Radio 3 which was selected for ‘Best of 2009’ by BBC Radio 3. The system has been adapted for numerous other applications including educational workshops such as ‘Beware Inanimate Objects Bearing Grudges’ toured by Welsh National Opera in 2011/12.
He is the recipient of five international fellowships and a ‘Best Composer’ award at London Fringe Report Awards, 2011.
