I’m a composer because…
“I love composing emotive music that takes people on a journey. I co-own a music production and sound design company, where we compose music for TV ads, films and TV series.
Alongside the creative work I also manage the business admin. There have been lots of sacrifices, including working long hours. It’s a lifestyle choice but one I wouldn’t change because I’m lucky to be doing a job I’m passionate about.
I’m completely deaf in one ear so I struggle to differentiate between stereo and mono. I sit side on to my speakers and will usually ask my business partner to double-check the mix.
I accepted my deafness from an early age and never let it stop me. Try and see obstacles as opportunities to view the world in a different way. Don’t let fear hold you back.
Before setting up the company, I worked as a radio presenter and performer. My most recent achievement was the release of my first contemporary narrative piano album called Evolving Reflections.”
