I am a freelance recorder player and have won a variety of awards with my two chamber groups The Flautadors and Concanentes. Recent professional engagements include playing for Handel's Julius Caesar at the ENO, performing with the Retrospect Ensemble in Belgium, adjudicating in the Hong Kong Schools Music Festival and playing on the sound track for the film 'The Awakening'.
