He has a Masters in Composition for Film from the London College of Music and Media and a degree in Physics from the University of Patras, Greece.
He writes music for a variety of arts and media, is a member of surrealist post-pop band The Chap, a member of new music collective Migrant Sound plays the violin in free-improvisation group rest and sudden rectum and has been a member of the now defunct Bohman Expanded Family.
