    Additional Skills

    - Experienced touring Head of Sound for theatre.

    - A determination to mix every show consistently to the highest possible standards.

    - Expert in programming Qlab.

    - Proficient in complex programming of Yamaha and DiGiCo consoles.

    - Master of cowbell amplification.

    - Knowledge of most acoustical simulation software such as Soundvision and ArrayCalc and the working knowledge of AutoCAD to acquire the accurate information required for simulation.

    - Tuning sound systems with an absolute passion for sonic image, even without using immersive processors such as L-ISA or Soundscape.

    - Arguably as important as my actual sound skills, dealing with people is one of my strongest points. My diplomatic, can-do attitude and friendly face always seems to go down a treat with the entire company.

    Professional Recommendations

    George Chatburn Sound Engineer

    I worked along side Eoin for the 2015 Avenue Q tour. Although it was his first touring production he was very confident and quickly adapted to the ways of touring. His system setup was very good and he quickly managed to get the sound into a stable and great sounding position. As well as his practical skills, Eoin has strong leadership skills and can control a department well. Perhaps the most noticeable feature of Eoins work ethic is his attention to detail and constant drive for perfection, up to and including the very last performance, there was not a moment that Eoin didn't want to improve something about the sound or running of the show. It was a great experience working along side Eoin and I hope our paths cross again in the future. He is a strong asset to any sound department and a great person to have on your team.
