Skills

I am primarily a Windows PC user, however I am equally comfortable working in a Mac OSX environment.

Audio & Music Production

I’ve been playing and singing in bands since I was 14 years old and have maintained an interest in this area ever since. I have a BA (Hons) in Music Production and am experienced in using CubasePro Tools and Reason for music and audio production; I am also au fait with microphone techniques and placement, outboard effects and the like. I have produced a great deal of my own music over the years, as well as occasionally other people’s, some of which you can hear on the Work page. I have the equipment to either record at home or on location, depending on requirements. I can also compose and record music and/or sound effects for your production, be it film, theatre or multimedia installation. I play guitar and bass to a high standard, and drums and keyboards as well at a basic level.

Data/Asset Management

Part of my current freelance work involves overseeing the conversion and upload of digital content (eBooks and audiobooks) for various clients. As a result of this I have experience managing a great deal of content, and making sure new content is converted and made available on time. I spend a lot of time managing data via Microsoft Office and I am very familiar with ExcelWord and Outlook in particular.
