I’m a young Jazz Saxophonist based in London. I’ve recently finished studying at the Royal Academy of Music, am a recent member of NYJO, and run my own Jazz Quintet, which plays my originals and creative arrangements of other music. I also play Recorder and Compose.

In 2018 I released my debut album, “No Excuses” for 13 piece ensemble on 33 Jazz Records, which is now available online, in store and from myself.
