About me

I have always been involved in music and the arts, performing as well as producing from the background. I have been involved in a multitude of creative endeavours, from painting public murals, custom t-shirt design, custom motorcycle spray jobs, graphic design, photography, video editing, music engineering, music performance and more. I have recently completed postgraduate study at university in the UK, all while freelancing during my free time. As of now, I will be somewhat new to the 'full time' freelance scene and I am hoping to build more contacts within the creative industries. I learn new concepts, procedures, or programs easily and fit into a team without disruption.

I have been featured on BBC Radio Introducing in Manchester and Liverpool and also have experience playing on television.
Played alongside members of the BBC Philharmonic with Ornette Coleman's free jazz bassist Jamaaladeen Tacoma.
