Brooklyn, NY Member since February 2016
I am a freelance professional working in digital, audio and visual fields. I have a broad range of skills that I have employed throughout my career, which has taken me from London, UK, across Europe, and now sees me based in the US.
After graduating a Batchelor of Science degree in Music, I started my career in radio as an audio engineer at a media production company in Central London. I had short spells interning at the BBC World Service and XFM, before moving over to the production department to eventually head up a global production team of around 20 individuals. As Senior Audio Producer I delivered on million dollar contracts for clients such as Air New Zealand and Qatar Airways.
I have remained an active musician throughout, founding a record label in 2005 with which I have released around 30 records. Management of the record label has led me further towards new media, particularly digital visual media, which I found complimented my audio background. I developed these skills further by working with photographer Diana Scheunemann as her Head of Production. In this position I was responsible for everything from day to day management of the studio to web design, photography and video production, lighting, digital operation and editing.
Since relocating to New York City, I have freelanced as a video editor for clients such as L'Oreal and the Goethe Institute, as a web designer for clients like Maybelline New York and Howard Hughes Corporation, and as DIT for TV productions such as Atlanta Challenge Iron Man. I have composed music for fashion and advertising, and served as Music Supervisor and Assistant Director on the documentary film Love American Skin by Diana Scheunemann. With 100m Records I have curated and produced live events across the city, including the South Street Seaport art and performance series Sugarcube. Sugarcube hosted and filmed artists, such as the Sun Ra Arkestra, for performances and workshops over a 2 month period.
