I am a co-founder of British independent production company Catalyst Global Media which launched in 2015 with a mandate to serve as a top-tier creator of original film and television content for worldwide exploitation. In 2017 I launched the subsidiary Catalyst Interactive, specialising in audio-driven games that naturally lean into the company’s narrative backbone but with a separate, original slate of gaming I.P.
I arrived into the world of games via my background working as a composer, originally for film and television. A classically-trained multi-instrumentalist musician, prior to working as a composer I also recorded and performed with artists including UNKLE, Radiohead, Florence Welch, Bat For Lashes, The Cinematic Orchestra and Sixto Rodriguez and was a long term member of the LA-based, Grammy-Nominated electronic artist Bonobo’s band. My first film work came about providing musical arrangements for director Richard Eyre for his Academy Award® nominated film “Notes On A Scandal”, after which I moved into composition for the screen more formally.
There is a signature style to how I work – a self extemporized mix of performance and production, constructed of shape-shifting sounds, spectral spiralling strings, resonating brass and effects – creating a project-specific soundscape and a compelling world of ideas which makes each project very different from the last.
Leveraging a passion for games and sound as well as a background in high end film and television, as Creative Director of Catalyst Interactive I ensure that the company’s slate of original gaming content maintains strong narrative integrity with atmospheric and cinematic edge.
