IMDB entry

Sound for: Film - Television - Commercials - Promos - Radio - Voiceover - Podcasts

Based in the south-east of the UK, but working worldwide, I have many years of experience across a very wide range of productions including feature film, TV drama, commercials, documentaries, promos, factual, educational and corporate. Filming work has covered everything from birth to post-mortem, from comical situations to personal tragedy, from tightly scripted to observational, and covert recording. In 2013 I received a BAFTA Best Sound on the feature film "The Gospel of Us".

Travel is no problem, as motorway links to the rest of the UK and Europe are swift. Two national & international airports are close-by, as are most of the UKs' major film studios and television facilities.

I am a member of the Association of Motion Picture Sound (AMPS), Institute of Professional Sound (IPS), and BECTU (Broadcasting, Entertainment & Cinema Trades Union). Please bear in mind, that over the years I have built up an extensive 'contacts book' so I am usually able to recommend names of other crew to suit your requirements.
