I have always been very involved in ensemble playing and have played at some of the best concert halls in the UK (Royal Albert Hall, Barbican Hall, Bridgewater Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall etc) as well as several overseas tours of Europe (Germany, France, Spain, Romania, Ireland, Belgium, Poland, Holland). I was awarded a scholarship to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where I am studying trumpet with Paul Beniston. I have been involved in numerous concerts and events since moving to London, playing with many different orchestras and ensembles including Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra, London Arts Orchestra, Guildhall Symphony Orchestra, Westminster Opera, ULSO etc. I am a founding member of three brass ensembles based in London: Vivace Brass Quintet, Tritone Brass Trio and Whitecross Brass.
