Sound editor | UK

I am a freelance Sound Editor who has spent the majority of the last 8 years as the Senior Sound Editor at Factory Create animation studios in Altrincham where my credits include the BAFTA winning CBBC remake of The Clangers as well as multi award winning titles such as Strange Hill High, Scream Street & Norman Picklestripes. My role has primarily been a creative one where I specialise in sound design, foley and tracklaying. Other duties include recording, directing and processing dialogue; dubbing mix to client and broadcast specifications; editing and mixing music; safe maintenance of studio equipment. Working, often as a team of one, in such a demanding industry has given me the skills to create and edit all aspects of audio production to a very high standard at a relatively fast pace. I have access to both my own home studio facilities for tracklaying and mixing as well as access to a professional dubbing suite ideal for foley and VO and am available to work remotely or at a facility.
