I've had work commissioned by BBC Radio 4, and been played on BBC 6 Music in Britain and RTE Radio na Gaeltachta in Ireland. I have an invitation from the legendary Barry Truax to go and work under him for a month or two next summer, and am basically awesome all round.

What they say:

"[Ghosts Before Breakfast is...] an excellent EP... we would also recommend his wide-ranging writings and his projects with archive film" - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

"I felt an instant affinity to your approach... technically masterful... very evocative" - Barry Truax, internationally-renowned composer and pioneer of granular synthesis

"multi-layered, thought-provoking work... have you considered entering the Turner Prize?" - Jonathan Hardy, multiple BAFTA-winning composer
