I am a audio professional with great gear, pleasant demeanour and a can do attitude ;) Willing to travel anywhere in the world and with incredibly low rates to compensate flights and accommodation.
I have experience in feature film, TVC, drama, documentary and television series.
What sets me apart and gains me many return clients is my ability to work enjoyably with the crew and comfortably with the talent to the productions overall success. Also my experience in location and post audio allows me to better consider what needs to captured during production to save time and money in the post.
I wish to see the world and will work very rates if production can cover my travel and accommodation, very possibly saving the production money on shoots over 7 days.
