AGSC Board Statement
Throughout my composing career I have benefitted greatly from being connected to the broader community of screen composers. With this in mind I have enjoyed being able to contribute where I can. I have delivered workshops on the business of screen music for Melbourne University and the AGSC, mentored younger composers and judged various categories of the Screen Music awards and the AACTA awards.
Since joining the board of the AGSC in March 2019 my main areas of focus have been:
Developing a long-term strategic direction
Researching and providing guidance on options for a new website platform that will streamline management of membership, events, composer resources and members directory
Participating in the Awards Sub-Committee which revised the Screen Awards Judging Guidelines
Continuing on in 2021 I will work as part of the Website working group to finalise the website brief and oversee its development to ensure the key goals for the platform are achieved.
