As a sound engineer over the last 20 years I’ve had the privilege to work with some great artists, and in some unusual and challenging places, from venues such as the King’s Place and Southbank Centre to festivals such as Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and Womad, from abandoned warehouses to major UK concerts halls.
I’ve mixed many genres from rock to folk, experimental sound art, jazz, contemporary classical, non-western music and electronica.
As well as being available as an engineer only I also run a high quality PA comprising elements from top manufacturers including D and B, Nexo, AKG, DPA, Neumann and Soundcraft.

For the last 7 years I have provided PA and sound engineering to this international festival of experimental music and sound art, including octophonic systems and concerts in unusual places.
Turner Sims Concert Hall
Regularly I provide PA and mix shows in this acoustically challenging concert hall. Shows span a wide range of genres and have included Cara Dillon, Courtney Pine, Maarja Nuut, and Vieux Farka Toure. A distributed system of multiple fills is used to create even coverage over a wide and steep rake.

Sound engineering and equipment hire for all their public meetings including the provision of loop systems.
Touring sound engineer for Athelas Sinfonietta and Annie Gosfield’s Fading Frequencies tour.
Tammy Bedford/ New Dimensions

Ran Kan Kan
I regularly engineer and provide PA for this 21 piece Oxford-based Cuban-style band.

As well as being OCM’s production manager I also cover their small scale events as sound engineer. I’ve mixed Japanese Kotos in arboretums, African Koras in hospitals and everything from Estonian folk to electronica.
