Bio

☆ Think Critically • Be Creative • Have Fun ☆

For over two decades, I’ve been crafting a body of work that defies easy categorization. As a filmmaker, radio producer, composer, and artist, I’ve always sought to push boundaries and challenge conventions. My creations, while stylistically diverse, are unified by a philosophical underpinning that seeks to explore the human condition and our collective potential.

Currently, I’m deeply immersed in the world of narrative filmmaking, with a particular focus on human progress and speculative futures. My latest feature, ART e FACT, is in the final stages of post-production—a project that I believe encapsulates my evolving artistic vision.

Perhaps my most ambitious undertaking to date has been The Hong Kong Agent, a transmedia experience that exists simultaneously as a feature film, gallery installation, radio play, online interactive experience, and augmented reality project. This work exemplifies my belief in the power of storytelling across multiple platforms to create a rich, immersive narrative tapestry.

My work in radio has always held a special place in my heart. I craft multi-layered audio experiences that blend spoken word, music, and soundscapes to create rich, evocative worlds. One such piece, Hong Kong: City in Between, earned recognition at the Amsterdam Soundscapes (be)for(e) 2000 festival—a gratifying acknowledgment of my commitment to pushing the boundaries of the medium.

Musically, I’ve never been content to stay within a single genre. My compositions range from chamber ensemble pieces to large-scale electroacoustic works for radio broadcast. I’ve released two solo albums on the British avant-garde label ReR Megacorp, works that have fortunately resonated with critics and listeners alike. For a decade, I also served as the musical director for Big hART, Australia’s premier arts and social development organization—an experience that profoundly shaped my understanding of art’s potential for social impact.

Academically, I hold a Master of Arts in advanced composition from Macquarie University in Sydney. My thesis, “Simultaneity in Music,” reflects my ongoing fascination with the complexities of time and perception.

As I continue to evolve as an artist, I remain committed to creating works that challenge, inspire, and provoke thought. I invite you to explore my creations and join me on this ongoing journey of artistic exploration.
