Hello there!

I'm an audio engineer currently working with SFL Group with many years experience in the industry, working with everything from jazz and classical to rock and metal bands.

I'm used to working on both analog and digital desks, and regularly work on large events, bands, festivals and theatres.

Festival Work

Large scale events with audiences of thousands, complex staging and FOH/Monitor setups

I have engineered FOH sound for events such as Momentum/Soul Survivor, monitors at Love Saves the Day (large festival in Bristol park), FOH for main stage at FrogFest (High Wycombe) and MAG Festival Reading, and worked in multi-venue festivals across cities such as Oxford's Folk Weekend as well as general tech for HTB's Focus event (6000 people). I'm also acquainted with working in high-end venues such as the Randolph Hotel, Oxford.



PRO1, PRO2, PRO-X, NEUTRON, DL stage boxes, DN units

Vi and Si series


CL, QL, M7, LS and older consoles

I have also worked with a large range of outboard equipment, other desks (eg Avid Profile/SC48, Roland M5000/M400, X32), microphones and systems including high end DPA reference and Neumann live microphones to Meyer Galileo/Compass system controllers and L-Acoustics / Turbosound / D&B speakers. My other skills include multi-track recording, DAW use (eg Logic, Pro Tools), streaming, system tuning (SMAART with reference microphone averaging / RTA analysis) and system design.
