|Studied media for 5 years, Worked in TV broadcasting since 1997 as well as producing music with bands and songwriters in my home studio between shifts.|
In later years had a number of small, miscellaneous post-production jobs on short films and TV pilots which led to a couple of days of location sound recording on a feature film with a professional ex-BBC director early in 2011.
Since then I have done more film sound recording, boom op work, dialogue editing, ADR, soundtrack production, sound design, music composition and edited a complete feature film which was screened at the Curzon Soho (London cinema). I am currently editing another feature and recording sound for two features and a TV sitcom.
The people I work for tend to comment on my knowledge, my attitude and how seriously I take the work.

|I converted a large garage into a music recording studio which now serves as a sound dubbing suite/HD edit suite. I run Cubase for audio mixing and Adobe Premiere Pro for video editing. |
I have had 12 actors through my studio doing ADR for two feature films in the last year, and recorded a couple of bands for the soundtrack.
