What I do…

I’m involved in a wide variety of performance projects combining audio visual elements, dance and theatre as well as chamber music, orchestral and solo work. I have been supported by the Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants, PRS Open Fund, Worshipful Company of Musicians and Countess of Munster. I also teach and run various chamber music and creative courses.
