In recent years my work has turned towards concert music, primarily focusing on interdisciplinary composition. Building on my professional background as a composer for film, theatre, and installations, my art music may incorporate other media, including still photography, animation, motion graphics, video and sculpture. I was made an Associate Artist of the Australian Music Centre in February 2015.
