I always had a musical background, having musical parents who inspired me from my early years. I was a bit of a geek, built my first computer at 13 – mainly to play games but also the start of my journey as to how I could use it to compose music.
Eventually I went to study Audio & Recording Technology at uni. I’ve been working in sound for around 7 years. I started out in live sound, then 5 years ago trained as a sound designer at a post-production dolby studio where I worked on feature / short films / commercials. 3 years ago I started freelancing as a sound designer / music composer.
I mainly use Logic Pro X for music composition, and Pro Tools HD for audio post / mixing.
I’m intrigued to see how virtual reality shapes up over the next few years. George Lucas famously said, “Sound is half the picture”. With a medium like VR which aims to hijack your senses, I think sound will play a crucial part even more so in aiding the person into believing the virtual reality.
Aside from that I like to songwrite, take pictures (especially with film) – I’m generally interested in most things creative, and technical.
