With Queens’ College Choir, Alex toured and performed in Hong Kong, Paris, Budapest and Switzerland, and featured on the CD ‘For The Wings of a Dove’. Alex studied organ with William Whitehead whilst at Cambridge, and performed in solo recitals across Cambridge, Cardiff and at Kensington Palace. After graduating, Alex moved to London and now holds the post of Director of Music & Organist at St Mary Magdalene, Richmond where he helped found a Choral Foundation and runs a monthly recital series.

Alex began DJ-ing, writing and producing music, and radio presenting whilst at Cambridge, and is actively pursuing a career as a Music Producer and DJ whilst holding his post in Richmond.
