Prelude Composer Residency at the Peggy Glanville-Hicks House 

I am so incredible excited and honoured to have received the 2018 Prelude Composer Residency at the Peggy Glanville-Hicks House in Sydney where I will be for the next 12 months. So many amazing people have lived here and created great things in this space-I can’t wait to start composing and making music.


Premier of my new music by Ensemble Trivium, December 3 

The exciting Ensemble Trivium have a very creative project which has commissioned many of Brisbane's most interesting composers to write a work for them.  I feel very happy to be one of the composers and will have a new work for Flute, Bassoon and Marimba performed at the ABC Studios on Southbank at 3pm on Sunday, December 3.

I have worked really hard on this piece and I am really excited for this premier and to hear the new pieces by Robert Davidson, Steve Newcomb, John Parker and Thomas Green.

More information can be found below. I hope to see you there.
