About me

“When a sound can replace an image, cut the image or neutralize it. The ear goes more toward the within, the eye toward the outer.” – Robert Bresson

I first knew I wanted to work in film from a young age; they were a means of great escape. It wasn’t until university that I realised that the soundtrack was where I wanted to explore my storytelling passions. Consider Bresson’s words, the sonic feature of film drives the emotions and alters our state of mind without us noticing it. Film sound involves great creativity and engineering that really excites me. After deciding to abandon my ambitions as a director I concentrated on sound and graduated with a first in film and TV from Edinburgh University. Still eager to be part of the whole process, from start to finish, I specialised in Sound Design and Location Sound recording. I want to understand what the director wants and help them to tell their story sonically.

Six months after leaving university I have been lucky enough to have been nominated for a Scottish BAFTA new talent award in Sound and work with some great clients and talent in the industry. I am completely mobile and can bring my sound studio to you or mix off site at home.
