THEATRE DIRECTOR,WRITER AND COMPOSER
I compose and perform all sorts of music. When I was but a youngster I sang and played keys in the band Blind Pew, we supported bands such as Idlewild, The View and Reverend and the Makers. I have worked with and recorded countless musicians, most notably Dogs Die In Hot Cars.
My composition and sound design work has been for companies such as The Royal Court, The National Theatre of Scotland, The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, The Citizens Theatre and many others.
I have written a number of musicals including 'Spuds', 'Naughty Cat and the Cheesy Moon', 'Vinyl Idol' and 'Towards the Moon' .
