After over 18 years, I still enjoy working in sound.
I got into film & tv via music and recording studios, but ultimately, helping to tell a good story is what I look forward to, no matter the medium.
From capturing the sounds of Olympic aerial skiers and their death-defying feats on the steep, frozen ski slopes of Ruka in Finland; to assisting in some small way to shed light on human trafficking and modern-day slavery on acrid-smelling fishing trawlers in the Gulf of Thailand; to running around after Hollywood actors in the humid, vibrant and frenetic Dharavi Slums of Mumbai in India.
I count myself very lucky to meet fascinating people from all walks of life and experience the warmth, values and vibrancy of their cultures and subcultures while often visiting awe-inspiring locations.
I have had the honour of recording & mixing dialogue in English, Filipino, Portuguese, Arabic, Marathi, Hindi, Cantonese, Mandarin, Khmer, Thai, Russian, Finnish, Yiddish, Tetum, Pijin/Neo-Solomonic and multiple Aboriginal languages. And I have worked across India, Singapore, Finland, Japan, China, Cambodia, the U.S.A, Timor Leste, New Zealand, Solomon Islands, and Australia-wide.
I’m ready, willing and able to travel anywhere in Australia or overseas – working with creatives to help bring their vision (and great sound) to fruition on the small or big screen.
From commercials and branded content for some of the biggest brands in the world such as Apple, Nike, Google and Facebook; to large-scale feature films and ensemble-cast television series for Marvel, HBO, DC, Warner Brothers, Paramount and Disney; to documentaries for Vice, ABC, SBS and Discovery. I’ve got the depth of experience, extensive sound kits to service all levels of productions, and the temperament to get along well with everyone while capturing great sound.
And I’ve never been afraid to get in there and help – on any sized crew.
I’ve also worked in post-production sound and pride myself on ensuring the dialogue editors, sound designers and re-recording mixers and their teams get what they need from me. So they can spend their time being creative for our directors and producers, not fixing things. I believe that the easier I make it for them, the more finessed my recordings are, and the better I communicate – the higher we can elevate the soundtrack and the production.
If you need a motivated, hard-working and friendly person recording sound for you, please get in touch.
