Originally from Lakenheath and went to school in Newmarket and Bury St Edmunds. Studied violin with teachers including Olga Wilson, Frederick Grimke, Manoug Parikian and Glyn Parfitt and benefited enormously from county music.
After music college I freelanced with London orchestras including Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, City Of London Sinfonia, Orchestra of St John's Smith Square, London Concertante and also other orchestras across the UK including Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Scottish Chamber Ensemble and National Symphony Orchestra to name but a few.
