"The highest skill that the course and lecturers gave me was a heightened sensitivity to my own practice, and my purpose and place in sound.

The best part of being at Goldsmiths, is that it creates a level playing field, a shared language for collaborative, and inter disciplinary interactions: I found myself speaking to Art Theorists, to Designers, Architects - we all had ideas to share and grow from.

The people I met at Goldsmiths changed my practice, and my outlook on our world.

Today I design sound & music for performances, media, and spaces.

I engage in collaborative work with designers, choreographers, and architects, generating interactions using compositional methods.
