Tell us about what you’re doing now

“I work predominantly in Musical Theatre.

In June 2014 I’m back in Yorkshire performing in ‘Betty Blue Eyes’ at the West Yorkshire Playhouse.”

What is your biggest achievement to date?

“Working in London’s West End. Or most recently returning from the Asian Tour of ‘Starlight Express’.

How did you get to where you are today?

“Hard work, lots of practice, a lot of networking and a bit of good fortune.

After leaving Bradford Grammar School, I studied a one year Diploma in Popular Music and Sound Technology and then a three year BA (Hons) degree in Music. I graduated with First Class Honours in July 2010.

I had a big break in March 2010 working for Bill Kenwright and Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber and things have snowballed since then really.

What are your fondest memories of Bradford Grammar School?

“Great staff, great place, great vibe all around the school, a very happy time for me.

How did Bradford Grammar School prepare you for further study/your career?

“The teachers just believe in you as a person and in what you want to do.

They invest time and effort in you and encourage you to grow and develop your skills. For me, especially, Mr Davidson and the Music and Drama departments.

What advice would you give to current pupils at Bradford Grammar School?

“Make the most of everything, utilise the facilities as best you can.

Drain the staff of all their knowledge and expertise and have fun. Do what you want to do. Stay friends with everyone…..you never know when you might need them!
