I am a baritone. I am from north London but I live in Tunbridge Wells in Kent. I have been enthusiastic about singing and performing for a long time.

I have performed in many operas and light operas. Roles that I have performed in full-length productions include Guglielmo (Così Fan Tutte), Leporello (Don Giovanni), Koko (The Mikado), Lindorf and Coppélius (The Tales of Hoffmann) and Marco (Gianni Schicchi), Snug (A Midsummer Night’s Dream), Lord Mountararat (Iolanthe).

In opera scenes or shortened productions I have played Marcello (La Bohème), Figaro, Count Almaviva and Antonio (Le Nozze di Figaro), Horace (Ballad of Baby Doe), Lothario (Mignon), Doctor Malatesta (Don Pasquale), Hamlet (Hamlet), Secret Policeman (The Consul), The Vicar (Albert Herring), Nick Shadow (The Rake's Progress), Hamlet, Papageno (Die Zauberflöte), Allidoro (La Cenerentola), Snug (A Midsummer Night's Dream), Calkas (Troilus and Cressida), Ned Keene (Peter Grimes) and Ping (Turandot), The Marchese di Calatrava (La Forza del Destino), Merlin and Montesinos (Don Quichotte chez la Duchesse), Pooh Bah (The Mikado).

In concerts, I have sung the bass solo parts in Handel's Messiah and in Mozart's Requiem. In 2014, I organised and sang in a concert with one other singer in Finchley. North London.

I studied opera performance at Morley College, London (2010-11). I have attended summer courses, including the Cratoule summer school and the Abingdon summer school for solo singers.

I enjoy acting, and like to inject some character into all of my performances. I'm interested in working and concerts or at functions. I enjoy singing in ensembles. I frequently sing in Italian, French and German, and I can speak those languages at a basic level.

I am committed and a fast learner.
