Strong interpersonal skills, extremely approachable, determined and I always like a challenge- I like to take pride in all that I set my mind to.

I'm currently a Junior Sound Recordist/Editor within the Creative Audio Department at Pinewood Studios. I am looking to further specialise within the world of audio post production and audio engineering.

Why audio? Just like picture, sound is a significant part of storytelling. Psychoacoustically we can identify emotions, locations, moods and characters through the inflection of voice, or the pitch and timbre of SFX and music. How one mixes and edits sound, can sub-consciously, or consciously, lead or mislead audiences to a given particular experience or empathetic response. As someone who loves to be hooked on a good story, this drives me to create and immerse viewers into different worlds, crafting multiple, audio material to tell enjoyable and powerful stories.
