I am an enthusiastic individual with a friendly and outgoing personality. I have a keen interest in all areas of sound production, and the film making process as a whole. Working within Sound, I have learned to be a skillful Boom operator. I am very good with radio mics and enjoy a good on-set relationship with artists and other departments. I have rigged and operated complex playback set ups. I have rigged many cars for sound and am used to planting microphones in various locations. I have mixed dialogue scenes both on my own and with a boom operator. I have experience with a wide variety of microphones and recording equipment. I have represented the sound mixer on numerous recces.
Before working in film and television I was a musician and have experience in setting up and performing live gigs, as well as playing and engineering in a studio environment. I still regularly engineer live shows for people.
