sound design - audio production - music composition - augmented reality

Mastering sessionI 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).
