I am primarily a front of house engineer but also a system designer and consultant. I teach live sound, present talks and write for the audio industry.
 I also record and produce. I've been in sound for over 35 years, completely by accident.

Career highlights

Glastonbury Pyramid Stage since 2007, FOH for London 2012 Paralympic Closing Ceremony, FOH for Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of the Worlds, FOH for Chris Rea for 18 years, flying PA systems around the mountains of Tajikistan in broken Russian helicopters, recording and producing John Matthias' Geisterfahrer album,....I could go on...
