“Simply put, theatre isn’t a performance. It is a passion onstage and off” says Adam who’s training and experience comes from a variety of different backgrounds and principles. Originally qualified in performing arts his career has taken him on a varied and interesting journey; everything from producing a summer pantomime at sea through to performing for the A-list stars in London and around the world. Born in the North East, Adam is now a freelance Director & Choreographer working across the U.K. on a number of productions. So much more than a performer, and with a top class client base, Adam is one of the most sought after individuals in the industry.
Still a performer at heart, Adam has played the piano and sung since he was 4. Despite having no formal training his list of high end clients and credits is impressive. He performs entirely to his audience; there is no set list, no music books and certainly no official repertoire. If an audience likes it – he plays it! Also a sought after musical director and choral animateur, Adam is the founder of Choirmaster UK. and produces and develops musical theatre workshops and choirs across the U.K. Much of his time is dedicated to inspiring people, who may not have the opportunity to sing, to get out and find their voice.
Adam has always being involved in broadcasting and is is often heard presenting and producing a variety of programmes. In 2014 Adam completed a BA Honours Degree at the prestigious University of Westminster, London in Radio Production and Documentary making. During this time he won a number of industry recognised awards. Most significantly was receiving the GOLD CHARLES PARKER AWARD for his production of the documentary, ‘Beachy Head – Life On The Edge’ which took him to work at the BBC.
As well as the above, Adam is regular engaged as an after dinner speaker and presenter telling the stories and tales of his adventures! When at home Adam spends most of his time in South Shields along with his partner Kevin.
