About Me

I've been making music since I was four years old!
I want to make your game come alive with sound and music

I am a sound designer and composer from jolly old England. I am currently based in Oslo, Norway, where I live with my partner and our son.

I have been making music since I was very young and became involved in the Norwegian indie game scene in early 2014.

I joined Antagonist, a small indie studio based in Oslo, three years ago as the composer. I then became the sound designer, the writer and responsible for marketing and social media.

I am now the CEO as well and we recently released our first game, Through the Woods, to good reviews and happy fans!

  • Composer

    I write music in many styles for computer games, film and TV. The numbers attached to these points are meaningless, by the way; they just came with the Wordpress theme.

  • Sound Designer

    I create believable and creative audio to make your game world come alive. Honestly, have these numbers things ever been of use to anyone?

  • Recording studio

    I have my own little professional studio which I have been putting together for many years

  • I am a nice guy!

    I am very easy to get on with and work hard to make sure I meet budgets and deadlines
