I am a composer, visual artist and PhD researcher at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. I use a blend of traditional scoring, electronic music and multi-sensory art to compose new music that is inclusive of under-heard voices through collaborations with fellow trauma survivors and children severe and complex needs and learning differences.
I completed my Masters and a Fellowship at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2017 where I received the school's 'Starred Award for Exceptional Performance'. In 2021 I received Arts Council funding to write, record and perform my 'Express Yourself Sensory Opera' for children with PMLD (Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities) and had my audiovisual work 'Geoffian Moon' selected for the eviMus international music festival in Germany. In 2022, I was one of 6 Guildhall graduates to be awarded the Futures Fund to write a new piece called 'Grounded Creation' about music, self-regulation and feeling safe.
Over the past 6 years, I have premiered works at the ARTICULATE
festival and Collaborations are More Refreshing than
New Socks at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp
in Belgium and at Guildhall School of Music
