Production Sound Mixer

About

I am a freelance Production Sound Mixer with over 15 years experience working on Films, Commericals and Broadcast Drama Series. I am proud to be a Full Member of both The Association of Motion Picture Sound (AMPS) and the Institute of Professional Sound.

After graduating from Kingston University with a First Class Honours Degree in Music (I majored in Music Technology) I worked as a Sound Recordist & Boom Operator for the facilities house TX at Shepperton Film Studios and BBC Birmingham (Pebble Mill). Since 2005 I have been working as a freelance Production Sound Mixer.

I am married with two daughters. We live near Guildford (just outside of the M25) with easy access to Pinewood & Shepperton Studios, Central London as well as Heathrow & Gatwick Airports.

Equipment

I own a wide selection of equipment and can create a package that
best fits the requirements and budget of your drama, film or commercial.

Mixers / Recorders

I own Sound Devices 633, 688 and 788T location mixers/recorders as well as two Audio Development AD146 8-channel mixers, a Sound Devices CL-9 and a Sound Devices CL-12 Alaia.

Microphones

I own twenty personal mics (DPA 4071's and Sanken COS-11's) in a range of colours as well as Sennheiser MKH 416, 50, 8050 and 8060 boom microphones.

Wireless Microphones

I own a total of ten wireless microphone kits (6x Lectrosonics and 4x Wisycom as well as additional transmitters for wireless booms. I hold a valid shared wireless license issued by Ofcom to operate my radiomics, wireless hops and IFB’s/IEM's within the UK.

On Set Headphones

My Lectrosonics IFB kit includes eight beltpack receivers that come with either headsets (Director, Script Supervisor, Client etc.) or covert earpieces (Boom Operator, Operator, Focus Puller etc.)

Timecode

I own nine Timecode Systems timecode devices (5x Mini TRX, 3x WiFi Masters & 1x TX) that provide accurate, perfectly synced timecode and metadata. I also own two Tentacle Sync miniature timecode devices for when space is a premium.

… and much more!

Over the years I have built up an enviable collection of sound kit - too much to list! - so my sound kit can be tailored to fit your budget and filming requirements. In the unlikely event I do not have the kit required, I have accounts with all the major sound hire companies where I can hire at competitive rates.
