Education

MA (Merit) Music Production

Wanting to contribute to my field I continued from my BA and focused my MA on research into Contemporary Metal Music Production.

BA (Hons) Creative Music Production

Always at the head of the class when it came to production in Live Sound, Max MSP programming, Studio or Field recordings. The course provided me with great knowledge of all things Audio, included live sound exams in real world situations in venues and bars, started learning on lesser gear and moved up to industry standard equipment, had fantastic music technology gear and allowed me to explore the analog and digital (and hybrid) world. 

Technical Equipment

Analog

STUDIO: I started in audio recording on HDD and finalizing to DAT and CD/DVD using countless pieces of industry standard equipment. My favorites: u87, Soundcraft K2, EL-6 distressor, SSL bus comp. 
LIVE: My proficiency with analog equipment allowed me to be offered to single-handedly engineer DeadLine Fest (Scarborough, 2015) with the following outcome: "The best on-stage sound we've ever had." - Dead White Doves and praise from others (audience, artists).

Digital

I have a very good working knowledge of ProTools 11, REAPER, MATLAB, Max MSP, and Adobe Audition.
Also, good knowledge of Swift coding for iOS and JSFX for REAPER.
