My musical career started age 8 with 5 years at Winchester Cathedral, a solid grounding in singing and classical music which is highly advantageous for my Rock/Pop/Metal and Engineering work now.
I have been playing in Rock / Pop / Metal bands for 10 years, and a ballad Vocal Duo. This ongoing involvement in performing helps greatly in my audio engineering work.
My passion is learning and applying audio engineering skills. Over the last decade have extensively studied this from a combination of tuition from top-class audio engineers, multiple textbooks, and especially recording and mixing itself - the best way to acquire the critical skill set. Psychoacoustics is a special area of interest on which I have lectured.
I am proud of the combination of performance and engineering experience I have, and clients will know that I can see it clearly from their angle.
