I have been working in live audio for around 15 years. My career has spanned theatre, music and live events. In this time, I have worked as a sound operator, mixing major west end musicals, as well as a sound designer, programmer and associate sound designer.
As sound designer, I have recently designed the premier UK and Ireland tour of A Spoonful of Sherman, which documented the life and work of the legendary Sherman brothers. This past Christmas, I provided the sound design for the renowned Hackney Empire pantomime, as it celebrated its 20th year. I am currently working with the National Youth Music Theatre, providing a sound design for their new musical Growl, which tells an alternative version of the Little Red Riding Hood fairytale. Growl will be embarking on a short tour, starting in May 2019.
As an associate sound designer I have worked with a number of designers, helping them realise their projects. Currently, I am working with sound designers Luke Swaffield and Emmet O'Donnell on Secret Cinema's immersive production on Casino Royale, which will be debuting at a top secret location in June 2019. I have also worked as an associate designer on plays, such as the west end transfer of Good People for sound designer Paul Groothuis, and on the Toronto transfer of Our Country's Good, with original design by Andy Smith.
As a programmer, I have worked numerous Secret Cinema productions, providing show control programming that links the audio, video and lighting departments on the production. These have included 28 Days Later, Moulin Rouge, Bladerunner and Romeo & Juliet.
As a software developer, I have released two applications, designed to assist live sound engineers in the programming and realisation of their work. The Audio Toolbox is an iOS application, which performs 8 handy functions, including various calculations, as well as MIDI testing and a QLab remote control feature. My latest programming project is macroLab, which is a programming assistant for QLab, built for macOS. Both apps are free to download from the Apple App Store.
