About me

 

My passion is music and I really enjoy working within this industry. I have been around different parts of the music industry from radio presenting and producing, to working with a dance record label and high profile artists and VIP’s. Most recently I have been working with a corporate event company, providing Audio Visual assistance to clients such as ‘The Royal Opera House’ and ‘Science Museum’ to name but a few. I have recently worked with the Queen sending her first tweet at the Science Museum and also Prince Charles opening up new Exhibition space. I have also been involved with a tour of the South of England as head technician with a 6 person cast performing a show called “Clockwork” which is theatre based. For 3 years I was a freelance Sound Engineer at a venue in London called Scala (Pentonville Rd, London). I have really enjoyed working with such an array of brilliant and different artists but I want to move on to bigger and better things within this industry. I am extremely hard working and very determined to create the best work I can and strive to ensure that clients are happy with the quality of my work.
