A little about me
I joined the BBC as a Sound Trainee way, way back in 1978 and started my broadcast career at Television Centre in London. While there I worked on many different programme genres including Light Entertainment, Sitcoms, Drama, Children's, News & Current Affairs and Sport.
The studios were quiet in the summer so I was sent on an attachment to the BBC Outside Broadcast department during their busy period. I was hooked by the varied programmes and travel and after 5 years in the studios, I transferred to Kendal Avenue, the then home of BBC OBs.
In my 30+ years on Outside Broadcasts I have worked on nearly every genre of programme but as a Sound Supervisor I have specialised mainly in Live Sports. This was exclusively for BBC Sport until the BBC sold Outside Broadcasts to SIS in 2008 and since then I also worked for ITV, ESPN, FilmNova, BT Sport, S+V , Racing TV, Whisper Films, Lagardère Sports and numerous other independent production companies.
I spent 3 years heavily involved with the design and delivery of on-board audio for the America’s Cup World Series culminating with the 34th America’s Cup in San Francisco.
This programme was nominated for a Sports Emmy® Award in the Outstanding Live Event Sound/Audio category.
In 2014 SIS decided to pull out of the OB market and I have been freelance since then.
