I'm a composer and I live in Princeton, New Jersey. I grew up in New Zealand and my childhood bedroom in Hamilton was occupied before me by Richard O'Brien (who wrote the Rocky Horror Picture Show). I hope I get to meet him one day.

Along with Shelley Washington and Maria Kaoutzani, I'm co-founder of Kinds of Kings, a composer collective focused on amplifying and advocating for under-heard voices.

Before moving to the US I worked in arts administration and project management for almost a decade. I've lived in Austria, England, France, and Japan. In addition to my music degrees, I also have a degree in English Literature, and any time I get to interact with writers and theatre people I find myself in my happy place. I write for I Care if You Listen and teach at NYU Steinhardt and precept at Princeton University. Once upon a time I studied industrial design; I mostly use the skills I learned to do graphic design. 

What I'm up to

I'm working on a piece for brass and percussion for the Auckland Philharmonia, a mixed percussion solo for Megan Arns, and a horror-comedy oratorio about love, sex, pregnancy, birth and death.
