During my career as a musician, I have performed in live theatre including over 400 performances of Andrew Lloyd Webber's show Cats, and have worked as an orchestrator, conductor, musical director and record producer for Australian and international clients that include Caroline O'Connor, Frank Bennett, Sir Robert Helpmann, Sir Howard Morrison, Eaton Magoon Jr. I have had my arrangements, compositions and orchestrations performed at the Sydney Opera House, The Royal Albert Hall (London), as well as in many television documentaries, mini series and feature films, which include the Oscar winning Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Aria award nominee album Cash Landing for EMI Music and the multi-Platinum award winning Australian Broadcasting Corporation album Come In Spinner. In the process of recording many film scores and commercial albums I have conducted studio orchestras including the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra for the film Frauds starring Phil Collins.
My current commissions are to compose a symphony in 4 movements for the Canongait Orchestra of Scotland, and a new trio for the Seiras Trio in Rome.
