    About me

    London based Freelance Sound Designer and Technician

    I have experience working as a Sound Designer, Sound Engineer, Monitor Engineer and Sound Crew in the Theatre, Corporate and Music Industries.

    I have been passionate about sound for most of my life and love exploring sound for both live and recorded media.

    I am both reliable and flexible and used to working long hours. I have excellent IT skills as well as a good knowledge of the Arts and theatre industries. In previous jobs/productions I have demonstrated the ability to work well in a team and as a team leader. I am experienced in collaborating with directors, production managers and being part of a multidisciplinary workforce.

    I have designed a variety of shows from devised studio drama's to fully accompanied proscenium arch musicals, via creating sound for digital media installations and operating sound for a large swing band.
