I have been working as a freelance performer since the age of 16 when I did my first pit show in Cambridgeshire, Fame. I've performed widely with orchestras, pit bands, brass bands, and chamber groups, some of which are mentioned below.
Alongside my professional brass performing, I am also studying and performing percussion and have already been part of an award-winning percussion team within Kidlington Concert Brass!
