I’m passionate about music that brings people immersive experiences. For me, music is the perfect gateway to deeper feeling and I like to create soundworlds that draw the listener in.
I enjoy exploring the role of mindfulness in music creation and performance and this has underpinned my masters in music (composition) at the Melbourne Conseratorium of Music.
