I’m a freelance location sound recordist with over fifteen years’ experience working on observational documentaries, current affairs programmes and corporate productions. Credits include: ‘Building the ancient city: Athens and Rome’ BBC4, ‘Flying Scotsman’ with Robson Green, ITV, ‘Grand Designs’ and ‘Gardener’s World’ BBC2.
I regularly work in Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff areas, and anywhere in Wales, as I split my time between two main bases: Aberystwyth in Mid Wales, and Ledbury in the West Midlands.
I’m particularly interested in working on projects that lean towards any of these end results: educational, ethical, artistic, ‘good-cause’, co-operative, collaborative, meaningful, pro-social. And I’m particularly interested in working with any of these general areas of subject matter: sustainability, environment, society, psychology, philosophy, linguistics, the arts, social history, the natural world, politics.
I’m a full member of IPS (the Institute of Professional Sound). I hold an NVQX3 certificate in Health and Safety, I have an enhanced DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service criminal records check). I’m a member of BECTU and have a current public liability insurance policy. I hold a valid passport, a full UK driving license and I have a basic level of conversational Welsh.
My location recording kit comprises: Sound Devices 633 (6 channel, timecode-capable mixer/recorder), Sound Devices 302 (3 channel mixer), Sennheiser MKH60 (boom pole mic), 4 x radio mic kits with Cos11 lavaliers, Beyer M58 stick mics x 2 (for presenter/vox pops style work), 2 x IEM’s (in-ear monitors) for director/client monitoring. Extra bits of kit can easily be hired in.
