Several collaborations, and finishing touches for my own solo album for release later this year.

I can really add to a project or piece of work, and support or even alter its direction through the use of music.
A large part of my professional background is in web, digital, and online media.
However, it struck recently that I have been writing instrumental music for half of my life, having discovered early on, thanks to support from great teachers and family, just how much I enjoyed writing, and not just playing music.
I started out learning to play keyboards when I was around 8 years old, and since then have made it a mission to always work harder, and continue to learn. I eventually progressed to other instruments, including the cornet / trumpet, the guitar - which I developed a completely separate passion for, having built up quite a collection of instruments - and have recently turned my hand to other string instruments.
After something of a hiatus, 2012 and 2013 have reminded me how much of a rewarding experience it can be to not just write music, but also to know that people have listened to it and enjoyed it. It is in all honestly the feedback, support, advice, and encouragement of my listeners that have led me to produce more music in the last 6 months than I have in the previous 6 years, and for that I am extremely grateful.
My SoundCloud and BandCamp pages are there to further that - finding an audience has helped to stoke the fires of inspiration which keep me keen on writing more.
Given the great feedback that I have received, and how pleased I am with some of my recent musical output, I am really keen to engage with new people and if I can, help them by making further use of my skills as a musician, and in turn, continue to learn and experience new things through music.
My experience within the realm of 'online', both through being a developer and also through my own activities as a musican - meeting the same challenges, frustrations, possibilities and successes that you will on your own path, puts me in a great place to assist you with your project.
