    About me

    I am an experienced sound engineer.

    I have recently worked as a Sound No1 for large scale musical theatre. For the past few years I have worked as a freelance Sound engineer, working as an operator, production engineer and No2 on a variety of projects and tours. Specialising in musical theatre my experience ranges from working within and heading up busy sound departments in the Westend to large scale, touring musical productions.

    I am well versed in Sound set-up, operation and design, rigging P.A.s, setting up the correct microphones for bands and orchestras, and integrating external sound systems into a variety of venues. I am familiar with the operation and maintenance of a wide range of radio microphones, including the monitoring and responsibility for them during performances and interacting with cast or musicians regarding their use. I have experience of operating a variety of productions, especially busy musicals; often with large bands or orchestras. I have extensive experience of Get ins and outs at all levels, I am used to both managing local crews and getting on with the job as part of a team or on my own.

    My previous work as a multi-skilled technician in a busy receiving house means that I understand and appreciate all aspects of backstage work. I am used to long unsociable hours, and have no objection to travel. I have also developed the personal skills needed in a live entertainment environment; I am friendly, approachable, calm under pressure and quick to learn new systems.
