Personal Summary - Optional

I currently reside in Cape Town but am moving to UK at the end of 2022. I have a British Passport so entry into UK is not a barrier. I can make the move to the UK at any point, the end of 2022 is just a practical goal.

I have been the senior mix engineer, sound designer, dialogue editor, and technical manager at Pressure Cooker Studios for the past 3 years. Pressure Cooker is a music production and audio post house that services all post production for advertising, television series (narrative and doccie), and film. I have been involved in face-to-face sessions for ADR, VO, and mix session with clients ranging from Ogilvy advertising to Netflix and have a deep working knowledge and workflow for delivering to any spec requested - Netflix, Showmax, Disney+, Streaming sites, as well as numerous short films.

I have spent a large portion of my professional career in education, but have always been involved in the various aspects of production of content. In the education field I had to train in all aspects of Sound engineering which often cross-sectioned with production and creation.

I am driven by interest in technology and the need to find solutions that best suit any particular scenario. I am process orientated and support the concept of structure within a creative environment as I believe it ensures positive outcomes in terms of creative requirements as well as timeline requirements. 

I have a life partner but no dependents.

As a hobby I write music, and understand creativity very well. I am also deeply involved in Theatre in Cape Town which has taught me that surrounding yourself with the right people will always make sure the job is done well.
