Matt joined the barbershop community in 2012 while studying music at the University of Manchester, getting very involved in the running of the Manchester University Barbershop Singers over the following seven years. From 2018-2020, he helped to organise several events for the BABS youth programme. He sings with Northern Quarter and was fortunate enough to be picked to represent the UK at 2019 international competition. Given the opportunity, he will bend your ear recounting every single moment of that trip as it was the best of his life.

His role as Director of Events will be to coordinate delivery of BABS' events programme, working with the experienced delivery teams to make our conventions, academies and other events as exciting, innovative and accessible as possible.  

On weekdays, he organises receptions and networking events in the creative sector, working with sponsors like TikTok, YouTube, Sky Arts and the Open University to deliver high quality panel and discussion events. He is cursed to sing bass despite desperately wanting to be a tenor and likes Doctor Who a little too much.
