I’m a freelance animateur and bassoonist and currently work all over the United Kingdom. Half English and half Venezuelan, I grew up in the Lake District, before studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and at Hamburg Hochschule für Musik und Theater.
In 2013 I was accepted onto the Spitalfields Music Animateur Trainee Scheme and since then have been increasingly in demand as a concert presenter and workshop leader.
I have presented schools and family orchestral concerts for the Royal Northern Sinfonia, the City of London Sinfonia, the Brandenburg Sinfonia, Deal Festival, the Multi Storey Orchestra, and Southbank Sinfonia and I’ve led creative music workshops for the City of London Sinfonia, the Brillig Ensemble, the Southbank Sinfonia and assisted on workshops for the the Britten Sinfonia, the Bath Phil and at the Wigmore Hall.
