I am an experienced sound designer and composer and have worked on creative projects across the board including animations, short films and radio productions and have also produced audio for video games. I am also experienced in designing augmented reality presentations (see here for more information) using the Aurasma platform.
I enjoy working in the studio but also grasp the opportunity to get out of the studio to do field and location recording.
My audio career began in 1994 when I recorded a number of tracks with a friend under the name of Insomnia (an anagram of our first names combined – you can probably guess what his name was). We used a completely hardware based set-up, including a Roland 808, Roland JX-3P and a Fostex four-track recorder.
Having subsequently completed a variety of music technology courses and additional training over the years, and spent many years producing tracks, I finally bit the bullet in 2010 and studied an MA in Audio Production at the University of Westminster. I graduated in 2012 with a 2:1.
I am originally from Hertfordshire and am now based in London and away from work enjoy going to gigs, getting lost in the great outdoors, meditation and following Watford FC. I can also play the didgeridoo – a fact that draws mixed reactions.
Three random facts:
I once woke up on a train in Eastbourne dressed as a Frenchman.
I have a tiny hole in one of my ears, which isn’t a piercing – I was born with it.
I also spend my time being a music journalist (see here).
