Work history

Hilton Hotels & Resorts
Resident Musician
I performed as a musician at the Hilton, Osaka for a 12-month contract.

Performed for three years as a resident musician onboard Celebrity Cruises' flagship cruise liners, the 'Eclipse' and 'Solstice'. This afforded me the opportunity to visit over 35 countries.


‘A Dreadful Shipwreck’: ‘Self-Induced’ Madness of the Male Protagonist in Victorian Fiction

This study was submitted as my undergraduate dissertation. This thesis was awarded the ‘Best Undergraduate Independent Study of The Year in English, Creative Writing and American Studies’, ahead of 400 candidates.

In What Ways Do 'The Moonstone' and 'The Signal-Man' Contradict Expectations of Sensation Fiction?

This first-class essay is an example of my excellent research and writing capabilities. Similar to my dissertation, it is a comparison of themes in two seminal 19th-century texts.
