Steve works as a freelance Musical Director, Composer, Orchestrator and Musician.

Born in 1972 in Sidcup, Kent, Steve grew-up and was educated in South-East London. Having previously obtained Grade 8 in piano, and grades in several other instruments including Flute and Oboe, during his final year of schooling he also took courses in musical arrangement and composition at Goldsmith College, University of London.

Shortly after leaving college, he undertook the co-writing of his first musical, "Georgie", the story of an 'ordinary' man re-evaluating his life's worth in the face of death. This went on to receive three runs over the subsequent few years, produced by local amateur dramatic groups in Greenwich and Eltham, south-east London.

From that time, he concentrated on writing popular music, some of which he currently performs with the function-band he joined some 20 years ago. More recently, however, he has returned to composing for musical theatre, and last year completed "Dracula: The Undead", an adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic novel, which has yet to be produced. He is currently working on two brand new musicals, while also working as a session musician locally, and studying for a diploma from Trinity College, London.

He regularly works as Musical Director for theatre productions, and teaches and accompanies for one of the leading musical theatre further education colleges.
