Happy IAAD 2020!

Hi everyone!

Hoping that you’re all well during these difficult times. Today is International Albinism Awareness Day, so I thought I’d take the time to share some information about albinism with you.

For those of you who don’t know, I was born with a rare condition called Oculocutaneous Albinism, which is an inherited genetic condition that reduces the amount of melanin pigment formed in the skin, hair and (in my case) eyes. Albinism occurs in all racial and ethnic groups throughout the world. In the UK., approximately one in 20,000 people has some type of albinism. In other parts of the world, the occurrence can be as high as one in 3,000. Most children with albinism are born to parents whose hair and eye colour are typical for their ethnic backgrounds.

If you’re interested in learning more about the condition, as it’s very little understood properly, I’d encourage you to check out NOAH’s information here: https://www.albinism.org/learn-about-albinism/

The Albinism Fellowship also share information about the condition here: https://www.albinism.org.uk/about-albinism/

The work that these organisations do is so amazing, so please take a minute to go over to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and follow them – they really deserve it.

Happy IAAD, once again, and I can’t wait to see you all at my concerts once this situation is all over!

New Website

Having had the same website for several years and never really being happy with it, I am so grateful to the guys over at Maestoso Digital for putting together this wonderful new website for me! I hope you’ll agree that it looks fantastic, and gives me the power to connect with you much easier.

I am planning on releasing a series of posts over the coming weeks and months about everything that I do, from my personal gig rig for musical theatre performances to my batons and scores.

If anybody has any suggestions for improving the site, or would like to hear my thoughts on any given topics, don’t hesitate to let me know by sending me a message on social media, commenting on this post or sending me an email! Multiple minds work much better than one!

I really hope that you are safe and well during these really difficult times.
