Raised in a loving and supportive family, educated at St Paul's School, the University of Cambridge, and the Royal College of Music, mine is a story of success against entirely possible odds.
I've been very fortunate in the opportunities I've been given, and I've tried to make the most of them. I left Cambridge with a Double First in English, before studying for a Graduate Diploma and a Masters in Performance at the Royal College of Music. Most recently, I've been in Bologna, and in Matera, the 2019 European City of Culture, singing Domenico in Silent City. You can see some of the Italian media coverage here, from 08:15, and here, from 16:10.
2020 brought me back to Cambridge to study for a PhD, writing on theatre and space in the context of the climate crisis.
Other things in my career I'm proud of: appearing on the BBC with Opera North in Opera in a Nutshell; coaching English for the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House; covering Nathan in Pleasure, again for Opera North; playing Edmund Bertram in Mansfield Park, for Waterperry Opera Festival; winning the British Music Society Song Prize in 2015.
