    "Summer" - Ukulele arrangement

    This piece was a lot of fun. The original guitar piece was composed by Rob Scallon, an American musician. I decided to write an arrangement for the ukulele and, half way through, thought how cool it would be to film a video in a similar style as Rob's and mash the two together. An international duet was hence born.

    "1940" - Cover of The Submarines' original song

    I did this cover with an American girl I met through YouTube called Katie Putnam. She initially got in touch with me having seen the Rob Scallon arrangement I did and suggested we work on something. We never met in person - I wrote and played the parts for all the instruments and sent them to Katie, who recorded her voice track over the top. I then edited it all together along with this video.

    "Heartless" - Soundtrack

    I made these four tracks for a video game which was being entered into a competition. The game had a sort of dystopian, robotic type feeling going on and I tried to reflect that in the music. The final track was for the boss battle.


    I've taken tens of thousands of pictures, probably more. This is just a small selection that I have picked out.
