Daniel was a member of OBA Cross Hands between 2012 and 2016, and is now working as a Sound Engineer.
We caught up with Daniel to hear about his experiences with The Aloud Charity.
What was the best thing about being in OBA?
The best thing about OBA is the rewarding experiences you are offered, and the fact that everyone can be themselves, whilst having a lot of fun together.
As a teenager what were your ambitions?
My ambitions as a teenager where to either be on stage, or to be behind the scenes, perhaps working in the West End or internationally.
Did being a member of OBA help you achieve your goals or ambitions?
If it wasn’t for OBA having brought out my confidence, drive and passion to achieve my goals, I wouldn’t be a professional Sound Engineer today.
Where are you now?
In 2020 I graduated from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. I’m currently back in Wales but hoping to move to London when the West End opens up again.
What advice would you give a boy who is thinking about joining OBA?
My best advice is to give it a go, and if you’re not sure, bring a friend along with you!
Just be yourself and engage with everyone there – as you will be rewarded with amazing music, friends and performance opportunities.
Can you sum up your OBA experience in 3 words?
A life-changing experience!
