Originally studied with Nigel Osborne and Ed Cowie at Nottingham and Lancaster Universities and additional studies with Peter Maxwell Davies, Brian Ferneyhough, Michael Finnissy and Richard Rodney Bennett, before spending ten years managing symphony orchestras. Won the Stravinsky Centenary Composition Prize in 1982 and was performed in London, Liverpool, Belfast, Manchester and Dartington as well as sundry smaller venues.

Then didn't write a note for twenty five years!

Now writes music of an eclectic nature, and with no particular expectation of performance.
