Biography:

All my talks are possible both in-person or virtually via ZOOM.

After graduating from the Royal Academy of Music, I performed as a soprano soloist at most of the major venues in the UK including English National Opera, The Linbury Studio Covent Garden (Royal Opera House), Garsington Opera Festival and Chelsea Opera Group at the South Bank.

I appear regularly on television and radio including BBC World News, The Paul O'Grady Show and gave a Ted Talk ‘Tell me the truth about Opera’ which has been viewed by 1000s. I give talks on the history of opera for Cambridge University, Marlborough College, Imperial College, Benslow Music and the Bishopsgate Institute. I absolutely love speaking on the subject of opera and spreading the glory of this magnificent art form.

I'm an award-winning entrepreneur, singing expert and speaker. I devote my time between leading team-building singing sessions for businesses, conducting choirs and presenting opera concerts. I recently launched Opera Live At Home, an online performance platform for young artists. It's such a joy to be able to present these concerts and provide live music to audiences who have been deprived these last 18 months. Please take a look at the website http://www.operaliveathome.co.uk.

I'm director of Corporate Singing Workshops one of the UK's leading providers of bespoke team-building activities. For more information, please see http://www.corporatesingingworkshops.com.

In 2017, I produced the UK premiere of The Juniper Tree, an opera by Philip Glass, which received outstanding international reviews with coverage on BBCR4, R3 and Classic FM.

My book Singing Tips at your Fingertips is described by Gary Lachman (The Guardian) as “the place to find the singer within” and contains 365 singing tips to help you on your way. It's available in Paperback, Kindle and Audible.

Residing in south-west London near the River Thames, I enjoy art, architecture and travelling. How do I relax? With a cup of tea, a good book and my cat on my lap if she is so inclined.
