About | Credits

I’m a location sound recordist and sound editor based in Wellington, New Zealand.   I’ve got an easygoing nature yet I’m very focused on high quality sound in situations as they’re presented.

I originally started in Film Production and Personal support / assistance.  Nowadays I primarily work sound recording, boom operating and sound editing on feature films, short films, TVC, corporate videos and documentaries.  I have been recording, composing and editing since I was a wee lad,  and professionally since 2007.  I’m particularly fond of documentary and short film, and are presently developing several of my own.   I have also composed music and sound design for films, exhibition, oral histories and theater.
