I am an experienced teacher of Composition with a background of ten years’ teaching at the tertiary level. I hold Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Music degrees from the University of Sydney and an MFA and a PhD from Princeton. I have written works spanning solo instrumental, chamber ensemble, choral and orchestral idioms that have been performed, recorded and broadcast in North and South America, the UK, Europe, Australia and South Korea. My music has been recorded and performed by prominent ensembles and soloists. My First String Quartet was recorded by top students from the Curtis Institute, one of whom, Judith Ingolfsson, went on to win the Gold Medal of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis.
On 18 July 2018 I was elected to a Fellowship by the Royal Society of NSW.
