I am a Sound Designer, Supervising Sound Editor, Field Recordist, and Re-recording Engineer. In my recent practice, since 2005, I have worked on a range of feature films, short films, documentaries, animations and sound art installations. I have a particular interest in the creative use of sound for narrative storytelling within film as well as audiovisual work that involves sound and image interaction.
In my previous practice as a music producer and studio engineer, I developed an interest in sound manipulation and experimental audio recording, using audio effects processors, recording equipment, synthesis, and sampling.
I am involved in a range of teaching at undergraduate and postgratuate level. I am the course leader for MA Sound Design. Teaching areas on the BA Creative Music Technology include electronic music production, sound design, audio post production and spatial audio. I have been working at Bath Spa University since 2005.
My research interests are within the fields of film sound design, spatial audio and sonic signatures within music production.
