I am a sound designer and composer based in London. My time is split between working in my own studio, freelancing at facilities in town, and recording/supervising on location. I am an experienced Pro Tools and Logic Pro editor, mixer and trainer.
After completing a music production course at Confetti Studios in Nottingham and a choral scholarship at St Martin-in-the-Fields, I began working for one of London’s biggest audio facilities, remaining there for a period of over 7 years. I now work from my own studio in Tooting, or wherever a project takes me.
I have worked on sound design and music for a number of national and international advertising campaigns, animations and short films, notably in 2011 creating music and sound design for the double Promax winning (best long form and best on air campaign) and BAFTA nominated ‘I Love Art’ series; in 2009 creating music and sound effects for the BAFTA, Promax Gold and Unicef short film award winning Nickelodeon ‘See Something Say Something’ campaign; in 2008 I was nominated for best sound design at the Aerials for BBH’s Audi A4 ‘Lights; in 2006 winning a D&AD pencil, Creative Circle Gold and Aerial award for the BBH/ITV radio campaign ‘Killer Katy’.
My long form experience includes editing and mixing episodes of ‘Time Trumpet’ and ‘The Thick Of It’ directed by Armando Iannucci, mixing and foley on ‘Part of the Weekend Never Dies’ – the feature length biopic of 2Manydjs and Soulwax, and sound design and mix for director Tim Meara’s documentary ‘In Search Of The Messiah’.
I have worked as a sound designer and editor on many short films including ‘Finkle’s Odyssey’ the critically acclaimed short film directed by Barney Clay, ‘Liar’ and ‘Juvenile’ directed by China Moo Young, and ‘Come Here Today’ produced by Sadie Frost.
I regularly work on location and in addition to various multitrack recorders (Sound Devices/Apogee Symphony/Tascam) I have a selection of vintage and modern microphones from DPA, Sennheiser, Schoeps, Brauner and Electrovoice, plus two Micron Explorer 100 radio mic kits. I have been fortunate enough to record hippos, chickens, tribesmen, massive sheets of glass, school choirs and Mariachi bands to name a few, from Central Africa to Stepney City Farm.
