I Have been recording and mixing sound professionally for 25 years now, all over the globe. With bases in London, Glasgow and South America (Chile) but working worldwide, I work in Feature Films and TV Drama but I have had experience in a wide range of areas of the film and television industry; Documentary/factual, promos, commercials and corporate.
I developed a keen interest in sound at a young age recording friends bands on four track machines. Later I trained in multi track recording techniques achieving an HND Distinction, before settling on my chosen career.
The diversity of the work that I have undertaken in the past 25 years has enabled me to work quickly and efficiently, in often difficult conditions and environments, without compromising on quality.
Work has kept me busy across the globe and I have experienced varying climates and working conditions. I have two up to date passports. I am a member of AMPS and have completed the five day Centurion Hostile Environment and Emergency First Aid course (HEFAT).
I think it is fair to say that I have a keen sense of adventure and particularly enjoy jobs that allow me to explore this. When not working I enjoy Surfing, running, climbing/abseiling. Most recently I took an Accelerated Free Fall course to become a qualified Skydiver, currently I hold a ‘C’ License.
My diary service is run by the girls at Callbox although please feel free to contact me direct.
