I've been a professional electric bassist for 30 years, and continue to work in TV, recording and theatre with many major artists. Since the mid 80's I've also composed and produced hundreds of radio and TV advertising jingles/scores, and I've been arranging professionally from the days when we did it with pencils, paper and ink. And Tipp-Ex.

I've always been involved with various live jazz and jazz/rock bands, and have a back catalogue of tunes written for these; some of which I intend to Sibelius-ize and post here - a lot of them have been tried and tested on gigs - along with new compositions.

In addition, I'm currently sketching out ideas for a new orchestral work (having finished my first serious string work last year), and I teach bass guitar to selected pupils.
