    About me

    Having studied audio and technology related disciplines over 3 courses of education, I am now searching for opportunities to showcase and develop my skills.

    I have a background in sound for tv, radio, education and multimedia, I have spent the past few years working in IT with occasional freelance audio work. I would love to fully immerse myself in audio, IT and organisational elements of productions to allow me to gain more varied experience, work alone & autonomously, utilising the skills I gained throughout my years at college and university.


    I will contact referees and add them soon.
