He performs regularly with the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra, and has been recorded for broadcast by the A.B.C.

He collaborates with Paul Tanner and Matt Styles in Mix’t, exploring the boundaries of cross-genre compositions. Their first disc “Home by 11” is available through Tall Poppies.
His interest in new music has seen him collaborate and premiere works by many Australian composers and perform in New Music Festivals internationally. In Rompduo with saxophonist Barry Cockcroft, this included the commissioning, premiere and recording of many significant works for the combination, both in Australia and internationally. This passion has led him to post-doctoral research at the University of Western Australia exploring and performing the works of Roger Smalley OAM. Performances reviewed as “stunningly virtuoso” by Neville Cohn. A recently released CD featuring the works of Smalley entitled “Transformation” is available through Tall Poppies and has been reviewed as “a beautifully recorded collection of works, consummately performed and of considerable historical significance” in Limelight.
