Studied piano from an early age.
Played flute in the London Schools and London Youth Orchestras and later in Surrey University Orchestra and Harmonie Musick wind ensemble.
Studied Music and Sound engineering on the Tonmeister Course at Surrey University.
Joined BBC initially as a sound engineer and later as a hybrid producer/sound balancer.
Produced wide range of programmes including Masterclasses, Interval features, Early Music Shows.
Balanced Concerts, Operas, Music Festivals inc the Aldeburgh and Cheltenham Festivals for 15 years.
Since leaving the BBC to start my own company, I now have to buy my own gaffer tape and don’t get to go on holiday, but the rest is all good! The creative process of taking a project from initial recording to completed CD, working with the top performers of our time is very satisfying.
In addition to my recording work, I also work extensively as a trainer for BBC staff and private individuals. I can offer courses for Sadie and VCS editing systems mixing desks, and an audio competency course covering everything from the basics of sound engineering, to understanding modern recording and broadcast systems.
