I am 40 years old and in 2003 I trained at Circomedia, Bristol to be a clown. As part of my end of year show I ended up playing guitar lots and this made me realise that I love music, telling stories and making people laugh more than I do juggling. Since then, after performing on the comedy circuit, winning a Mervyn Stutter 'Spirit of the Fringe' Award 2010, taking 3 solo comedy shows to Battersea Arts Centre (Dropped as Child, Can't Come & Gentle Songs) and touring nationally with my own theatre projects, I now compose music for various theatre and film projects and have collaborated on 35 productions.
