I am a light-lyric tenor from Bristol studying with Antony Roden in London. In September 2017 I will be taking up a place at The Royal Academy of Music on the Master of Arts course with a scholarship. A Cardiff University Music Graduate, I was awarded The University's Vocal Scholarship, The Cardiff University David Lloyd Prize for Singing and The Elizabeth Griffiths Prize. In October 2013 I was selected and supported by Garsington Opera to receive complimentary coaching at ENO from conductor Stephen Higgins.

Since 2015 I have been working as a soloist and chorus with Opera Holland Park. I am an experience deviser and have I most recently developed work with Mahogany Opera Group, premiering their new children's opera The Rattler at The Royal Festival Hall and touring throughout 2016. In addition I developed a new music-theatre piece for The Theatre Royal Bath (The Egg)/Dance Umbrella, and in April 2016 I prepared the role of Tom Rakewell for workshops with Simon McBurney (Complicite) to develop his production for the 2017 Festival d'Aix-en-Provence.

With The Melos Sinfonia in July 2016 I performed the role of Un Amante (Il Tabarro) in concert at LSO St Lukes. I have collaborated with Hannah Stone, The Royal Harpist, on The Britten Choral Dances from Gloriana in December 2013, and I made my professional recital debut in January 2015 with a programme of Handel repertoire at The Handel House Museum. I returned again in 2016 to perform, and have a recital planned for 2017 at the museum. I am an experienced oratorio soloist, and have performed a wide range of sacred repertoire with major choirs nationally.

I am Co-founder and Co-Artistic Director of performance collective Indomitable Productions; a group of early-career artists that collaborate and explore different creative forms. For the company I have performed innovative staged performances of Britten's Five Canticles and Vaughan-Williams' Ten Blake Songs, exploring puppetry and physical theatre elements. I have received training in puppetry and movement from Will Tuckett (ENB/RB), Sue Buckmaster (Theatre-Rites), Mervyn Millar (Handspring Puppetry) and Mark Down (Blind Summit), in workshops with The Chroma Ensemble. I have a passion for outreach and work for young people, frequently performing in or curating workshops and participatory events.
