I’m a sound recordist. I’ve worked on TV shows, documentaries, branded content, commercials and feature films around the world. I have a particular interest in sound for documentary and factual content.

My engagement with documentary film began when I studied anthropology at Manchester University. With a background in music and recording, I was drawn to how sound was used in ethnographic film. This interest continued to a job at the ICA in London, where I spent a lot of time in the cinema watching documentaries from all over the world. Who was out there recording all of these sounds, was that an actual job? This question became the impetus to ditch the desk job and go to the National Film and Television School to enrol on the Location Sound Recording diploma.

My favourite films (subject to change) are American Movie, West of the Tracks, Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus, Blue Velvet and Old Joy.
