She now studies at Trinity Laban and is a member of Tomorrow’s Warriors Female Frontline, which has seen her perform throughout the London jazz scene, as well as regularly attending jams at Ronnie Scott’s, The Haggerston, Troy Bar and Steamdown among others. As a composer she has written for a variety of different ensembles, including a piece for big band that was played at the Royal Albert Hall.
