In September 2020, he graduated with a First Class Honours in the Bachelor of Music performance degree from TU Dublin Conservatoire (formerly DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama) where he studied piano under Mary Lennon. He has also taken part in piano masterclasses and lessons with Christopher Elton, Barry Douglas, Vanessa Latarche, Simon Trpčeski, Leon McCawley, Hilary Coates and Thérèse Fahy.
He is an experienced performer and a multiple prize-winner for both solo and collaborative performance in major Irish national competitions and festivals including Feis Ceoil and Sligo Feis Ceoil where, in 2019, he was awarded the €1,000 Piano Bursary sponsored by Eileen and Ray Monahan.
He is in demand as a vocal accompanist and his keen interest in vocal performance has led to him performing in vocal masterclasses with Orla Boylan, Patricia Bardon and Julian Hubbard. In 2019 he acted as répétiteur and harpsichordist for TU Dublin Conservatoire's production of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas.
He is passionate about piano pedagogy and currently teaches piano in the Newpark Academy of Music, Blackrock.
