I'm a musician and sound designer, living in Glasgow with my wife, Emma.

I've made music under loads of different names, toured Europe and the US, played on the banks of an Oslo Fjord, been commissioned to remix a notorious new rave band, ended up on a DJ Kicks compilation, worked with Momus, been complimented by Mousse T ("sounds cool, guys") and am presumably one of the only musicians to be featured in Attitude Magazine and Terrorizer in the same year.

I've soundtracked everything from Operas, Short Films, Skate Shoe adverts (w/ Daewon Song in them) and Kenzo fashion campaigns

My last full-length record, Wyped Out , was released through Acid Waxa.
I also play Saxophone and Piano in 'Jazz-Fusion Supergroup' Banana Oil.

I've been working in Sound for Artist's Moving Image, Installation and Stage work for over 10 years.
My practice includes sound design, original music, creative production and workshops, live and recorded arrangements for performance and mixing for screenings and installation, alongside occasional foley and sound editing.

I love to work in collaboration with artists of differing practices and enjoy the challenge of communication between mediums and approaches.

I hold an MDes (with Distinction) in Sound for the Moving Image from Glasgow School of Art.

Likes: skateboarding, drawing, camping.
Dislikes: tiny crockery.
