About me

 

I am an ambitious and technically driven individual with proven experience in music production and audio engineering. I have worked over 500 hours in recording studios with various consoles and I have achieved a First in a BA (Hons) degree in music production, where I developed fundamental skills in recording, mixing and hardware integration. I have also spent an enjoyable time being a part-time sales assistant at John Lewis in the audio & TV department, which has given me experience in a fast-paced environment. I am extremely personable and an effective communicator and can work with people on all levels. I currently hold a Broadcast Assistant role at Reprezent Radio, which has allowed me to demonstrate my ability for seamless edits, flexibility between DAWs and efficient time management for planning shows.
