Trying to pinpoint the moment that ignited my passion for sound is extremely difficult as many of my most treasured childhood memories revolve, in one way or another, around it. However, the moment that is engrained in my memory more than any other is when I became infinitely jealous of Kevin McAllister (and later my best friend when he received one for Christmas) and his Talkboy tape recorder from Home Alone 2. At the time I’m sure my mind was only overwhelmed with inspiration from Kevin and the potential mischief that I could cause with it, but in hindsight, I think I was more amazed by the way that sound could be used so creatively.
Fast forward through the years of teaching myself to play guitar, messing around with a Korg 4-Track Recorder and unleashing a healthy amount of teenage angst by playing in punk rock bands, my love of sound developed into an obsession with music. It’s that obsession that I took to University, aiming to make a career out of something I loved. However, during my time at University, I was introduced to sound production for the moving image (something that had never entered my mind until then) and it was then that the metaphorical light bulb in my head switched on and I realised which path I wanted to take when it came to my career in audio.
Since graduating, I have been fortunate enough to create and maintain a successful career in this segment of the audio industry, through working as both a Location Sound Recordist and in all elements of audio post-production. My current portfolio contains work produced for corporate clients including HSBC, Citroën and Laura Ashley, as well as credits from a a wide-range of TV programmes and promos produced for such broadcasters as the BBC, Channel 4 and Sky.
I am currently based in Norwich, working with a range of clients across the country to produce professional, exciting and creative audio content for a range of visual media.
