Expertise

Academic

I have been in education since 2002 and have delivered content at a number of levels during that time including City & Guilds, BTEC, Key Skills, HNC HND and FdA. My current focus is on the delivery of Undergraduate BA (Hons) Courses and Post Graduate MA Courses at dBs Music, Plymouth.

Audio

I opened my first commercial recording studio at 20 years old, in 1998 with funds from the Prince's Trust. Since then I have planned, built and run several commercial recording studios. I have consulted on the design for Mastering Studios and Practice Rooms. I am particularly strong at System's Integration including Patchbay Design and Implementation.

Technology

My other passion is Technology and how this can be used in audio. I am interested in both electronics and programming and would consider myself a 'Maker' more than an expert. I like to hack electronics and code to create new things. As such I am vaguely proficient in a number of programming language such as C/C++, Python, HTML5/Javascript, PHP/mySQL and others.
