In 1982 I left Radio Tees and joined Tyne Tees Television as a sound engineer, and worked in the Sound Department for eleven years being involved in Studio Sound, Drama shoots, Post Production and Location Recording.
In 1993 I became freelance and equipped myself as a location sound recordist, and have worked since then with Independent, BBC, and ITV companies.
Since 93 I have also worked extensively with the UKs major Outside Broadcast Companies on a variety of shows. In 2010 I joined the staff of Northumbria University as a part time lecturer in their Media Department. I taught the sound module for the Basic Media Technology course. I live near Newcastle upon Tyne in the North East of England, but have worked throughout the world.
