Performance highlights so far include appearing at the Vortex jazz club and Birmingham's Symphony Hall with the Birmingham Jazz Orchestra, and playing alongside Dave Holland, Nate Smith and Stan Sulzmann as part of Birmingham Conservatoire's final jazz concert at the Adrian Boult Hall. He has also performed at various festivals, including Cork Jazz, Mostly Jazz Funk and Soul, Cheltenham and Trondheim Jazz Fest (Norway)
