I’m a composer, artist, and music educator. Originally from Latvia, but I have lived, studied, and worked in a number of places, from Wales to Russia.

Here’s a list of the things that I do:

  • Writing contemporary classical music.
  • Academic research.
  • Writing music for films and video.
  • Doing sound design for film and video.
  • Making sound installations and sound art.
  • Teaching composition, guitar, and piano.
  • Writing on a whole range of musical topics.
  • Performing music, as a solo guitarist.

My portfolio can be found here.
