Everyone has a story.
Mine is about change. I kinda have a few sides. I’m a music composer, a plant/soil scientist, and an embryo visual artist and science communicator. Which one is more dominant depends on the way I’ve slept the night before, or the strength of my coffee in the morning.
I started out as a composer and electronic arranger. I’ve worked in Australia and the US, writing music for all sorts of film projects and advertising. But after realizing that I hated music as a ‘job’, I made a decision. I decided that music shouldn’t be my whole life. It couldn’t be – not without destroying the joy I derived from it.
So, I stopped writing full-time, and started a science degree at UQ. A few years later, I’m a PhD student, researching nitrogen cycling in soils. My wife calls me an edaphologist – someone who studies the influence of soil on living things; plant, microbes, humans. It has changed the way I view the world, and I feel a more complete man for it.
But I’ve never stopped writing, and not wanting my music to sit in a dusty corner of my hard drive unused, I now release it freely in my Creative Commons music library. I’m proud to say I’ve helped hundreds of people tell their own stories, and I hope to continue doing so.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find what you’re looking for.
