Since 1984 I have recorded Sound in the film/tv industry across a whole range of program output for international broadcasters and a host of independent TV companies.

My first love is documentary Sound Recording and I have also worked on many dramas as well as corporate production companies and their international clients.

In 2003 I won a Royal Television Society Award: Entertainment Non-Drama Production Award: Sound Team – “Fighting the War” (2004) BBC2 documentary series, where I was embedded with the Black Watch (7th Armoured) during the invasion of Iraq.
