He continues to work with the company performing small roles and covers. Recently he has worked with OHP Inspire performing The Pirate King (Pirates of Penzance) as part of their outreach programme.

He has worked extensively with the company OperaUpClose recently performing the title role in The Marriage of Figaro, Schaunard in their award winning La bohème, and Dulcamara in their critically acclaimed L'elisir d'amore.
