What I'm working on at the moment
Currently Sound Designer for Northern Stage's 2021 Christmas Musical 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice'; Sound Designer for November Club's 'Food & Feuds' at Hexham Abbey; Associate Sound Designer for Melanie Wilson on 'You Heard Me' R&D. I am also continuing to develop a new touring sound installation 'The Rime'.
I am a Sound Designer and Sound Artist working across theatre, abstract music and contemporary art - equally at home as part of a collaborative team on large scale productions or independently on solo commissions and always driven by a love of storytelling and immersive experiences.

My practice is broadly focused on source materials and the creative manipulation of their sonic qualities to create a richly textured soundscape. Mainly working with original field recordings but also adapting to whatever material feels most appropriate to the project.

As a Sound Artist I seek to compose soundscapes that encourage increased engagement with our acoustic environment.

As a Sound Designer, I adopt a holistic approach that includes content creation, show control programming, and playback system design.
