Rob recently scored Amazon Studios’ feature Troop Zero, directed by Bert and Bertie and starring Academy Award® winners Viola Davis and Allison Janney and is fast becoming one of the UK’s most sought-after composers and songwriters working in film and television.

Other notable credits include the BAFTA and RTS award nominated feature documentary The Girl Who Talked To Dolphins for the BBC, and the multi award winning six part US Sci-Fi drama RCVR, directed by David van Eyssen.

In a previous life having graduated from Art College  Rob toured and recorded for a number of high profile groups playing keyboards and guitar for Dodgy, The Primitives, Voice Of The Beehive, The Connells and Paul Oakenfold’s Grace for whom Rob wrote the UK hit You’re Not Mine. Rob also had his own bands Vagabond Joy and Starpower signed to EMI and Rough Trade respectively. He spent five years as audio director of UK games company Perfect Entertainment and scored a series of number one titles for them as well as games for Disney, Eidos, Sega, Codemasters, Microsoft and numerous other publishers.
