I'm a songwriter and recording artist. I launched Rothko Records to support my work. One of my projects was to create a new band from scratch—remotely, using agile principles—and record on a 1939 lightship moored on the River Thames 18,000 kilometres from home. I've toured through Japan, South Africa and Australasia.

Selected work:

  • Magnalith, Instrumentality (2021) — an EP produced remotely during New Zealand and UK lockdowns [post-metal]
  • Domes, Vol. I (2020) recorded on a 1939 lightship moored on the River Thames 18,000 kilometres from home [metal, space rock]
  • Decortica, 11811 (2012) and Love Hotel (2010) — concept albums [alt-rock, prog rock]
