I have been playing and making music since the age of 8, when I first started receiving cello lessons from my dad. Throughout my childhood and adolescence in Glasgow I played with numerous bands, orchestras and ensembles, before leaving to study music and English literature at the University of Sheffield, specialising in composition.

In 2013 I moved to London where I began playing with Tatcho Drom, one of the UK's leading exponents of Romany music from Eastern Europe, the Balkans and beyond. I also became closely involved with London's improv comedy and theatre scene, providing live improvised music for groups such as Austentatious, Notflix, Music Box and the Dreamweaver Quartet.

As a composer and arranger I have written original music for novelist and playwright Carole Bulewski, short film Mulo, and Cat Loud's To The End of the World!, which won VAULT Festival's Origins Award 2018. I also write and perform with my own group Try Happy, who released our first EP, Thankyou, in 2018, and will follow with a debut album in early 2020.

This year I am working on my first theatre piece, a personal and historical exploration of drinking culture and music in the UK and abroad, entitled Drinking Songs: A Musical History of Alcohol.
