Welcome to my website!
I'm a bass-baritone opera singer, writer, and director, based in Doncaster in South Yorkshire. I hope you'll find plenty of information on these pages, but if you can't find what you're looking for, why not send me an email?
Covid-19 and 2020/1 Update
Owing to the continuing challenges presented for the live entertainment sector, I don't have any forthcoming performances to publicise here right now, but I'm really pleased to have been asked to contribute to a number of online projects over the course of the year, including 12 Tiny Plays for Fly High Stories.
This is a series of scripts which can be dowloaded at home for families to share and act out together. Working with Jemma, Rachel, and the rest of the Fly High Stories team has been really good fun, and I really enjoyed looking through the whole range of activities during December 2020. I'm also really pleased that the project's availability has been extended throughout the 2021 lockdown.
You can download my play King Arthur's Christmas Presents and all the other scripts and activities here.
I've also contributed a puzzle to the Live Canon Book of Literary Crosswords. This is now on sale from the Live Canon website. My crossword has a strong operatic/musical bent, and I hope you enjoy having a go at solving it. (Email me if you need any hints...!)
Throughout the whole of this year, I've been doing what I can to keep creating, to keep collaborating with friends and colleagues, and to reflect on what these changes are going to mean for our future as performers and artists.
Stay safe, and see you again soon I hope...
