Scoring "CHEREINE ROYAL INTRODUCTORY FILM"

It was a great pleasure to return back to the "Chereine Royal" cosmetics family after having produced Ian Chen's beautiful score for their launch film last fall. Reteaming with my friend and wonderful director Jason Carpenter of TigerHouse Films is always an exciting prospect, this time scoring their upcoming introductory film for their new line of cosmetics.

An invaluable part of the team was my assistant and co-producer on this score Chen Shen.

The film is in the final stages of post-production at the moment.

PIANO QUINTET NO. 1 RELEASED

I'm so proud to finally share my first piano quintet "Freedom In Exile" with you all. It was written as the ending piece for the feature film "THE BLACK THAT FOLLOWS" but is also a very personal piece as it speaks to some very specific moments in my life thus far.

I was very honoured to have had such a distinguished group of musicians perform the piece and look forward to sharing more of the score with you all shortly.


"AFFINITAS" PIANO VERSION FASHION FILM RELEASED
