Work history
    ProducerGlobal Sound Movement
     - Preston, United KingdomInternship
    In this role I developed many key skills as an audio engineer and music producer. I am extremely competent with the different digital audio workstations used by the company (particularly Ableton Live) and my main duties included; getting top quality recordings of a variety of instrumentation and environmental sounds, carefully listening through and editing recordings, creating professional sample packs containing individual hits and loops, communicating effectively with non-English speaking musicians and composing original music to a professional standard using only these recordings. As an audio engineer and producer, quality assurance was of the utmost importance and something I adhered to constantly; I am therefore extremely thorough in my efforts to achieve the best possible results and handle problematic circumstances efficiently and professionally.
