Full bio

I started studying music when I was young - I was a chorister in the Choir of King's College, Cambridge from the ages of 8 - 13, during which time we performed in concerts all round the world, recorded a number of CDs for EMI and sang pretty much every day. Highlights included winning a Classical Brit Award and recording the album for Titanic at Abbey Road.

I returned to Cambridge for University, studying Music and again singing in King's Choir. I graduated with a double-starred First, coming top of my year in all three years. This time around, highlights included broadcasting a concert live to cinemas across the country and performing with Dizzee Rascal at the BBC Electric Proms.

When I left University, I worked on my composition - I had a number of classical pieces published by Novello and Boosey & Hawkes. I also did bits of journalism, writing about arts and technology for The Spectator.

Then, while visiting my girlfriend at Harvard, I went to one of her Introduction to Computer Science lectures, immediately fell in love with programming, and the next day started work on Jukedeck.
