Biography

I am a composer and saxophone player originally from the UK. I graduated from Birmingham Conservatoire with the BMus Course Prize in 2015 after studying with Joe Cutler, Sean Clancy and Howard Skempton (composition) and Naomi Sullivan (classical saxophone). 

I am now completing my masters in composition at The Royal Conservatoire in The Hague (Netherlands) where I am studying with Guus Janssen, Martijn Padding, Rozalie Hirs and Jan van de Putte. My studies are supported by a Leverhulme Trust Study Abroad Studentship from 2017 to 2018. 

Recently, I have been interested in the subject of musical expectations, and have been exploring ideas related to this in my master research thesis supervised by Yannis Kyriakides and Samuel Vriezen.

I've been lucky enough to collaborate with a huge number of talented musicians and artists including Puppet Designer/Maker Catrin Wright, saxophonist Naomi Sullivan, conductor Richard Baker, The Schubert Ensemble, The Berkeley Ensemble, Kluster5, Omega Impact, Orkest de Ereprijs, Dutch National Opera (DNO) and Residentie Orkest. 

I am a member of The Hague based trio SQUEE! where I play alto/tenor saxophone and piano along with Annick Odom - Double Bass and James Alexandropoulos-McEwan - Electric Guitar.
