I write original alternative rock, metal and experimental music, incorporating diverse influences such as Tool, Iron Maiden, Dead Can Dance, Killing Joke and Paradise Lost. I enjoy combining atmospheric textures, powerful riffs and melody to create interesting and moving music.
I launched an alternative metal solo project called Through Shadow Into Light in 2013. The debut ten-track album The Spiral Sequence received critical acclaim and radio airplay on many specialist heavy rock and metal programs. War Without End is the latest single by Through Shadow Into Light, released in July 2020.
After playing in various alternative and metal bands I now create music from my home studio in Melbourne, Australia. I write, record and mix everything myself and create all of my own artwork. Since 1996 I've been working as a graphic designer, and I run my own freelance design and illustration business. From 2001 onward I worked as a freelance music journalist, interviewing and reviewing many of the metal and rock bands I loved, which provided me with a great education in the music industry.
I love creativity in all its forms and plan to continue writing and releasing new music as often as possible, with no limits or boundaries.
