I started my musical journey learning the guitar. I practiced scales, learnt etudes and duets but even after a few lessons I started experimenting and writing short little compositions. I couldn’t help it.

Highschool was where I really started to embrace music. It never really entered my head not to write music and so I did.

A defining moment was when I went and auditioned as a vocalist at Southern Cross University. Thankfully they had the foresight to ask each potential candidate what they wanted to do with music as a career. My responses made them suggest I try out for music composition. I went on to study music composition for 3 years.

I’ve written music for the bands and other musical projects. Below is a taste of those projects.

Are you looking for a songwriter for hire to create something unique and special for your event, a loved one or your business?
