Otis is a Musician and Dancer, with a BPA (Hons) degree from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds. He has worked as part of a Dance and Music duo called Snakebox since his graduation, exploring the synergy of music and movement, and taking lessons and techniques from both to further his artistic craft. He has composed scores for independent contemporary dance pieces and films, with artists such as Ciemulator Dance Theatre, Mobius Dance and Jamaal Burkmar. He also works as a composer for independent feature films, and online advertisements. Otis has much musical experience as a multi-instrumentalist, which he has utilised not only in his composition work, but also performing with bands (both original work and covers) and his work as an accompanist for the Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
