Additional Skills

My sound quality: "even better than some pro studios I've been in" - Terry Daniels (american Voiceover coach and Voiceoverist)

I work towards and follow SaVoa Vocal and Technical delivery guidelines.

From a Producer/Production standpoint.
One job was for a company called Fabulous Films who were owned by Fremantle. It was for the release of a DVD called 'The Mysterious Cities of Gold' They required a CD of the soundtrack as a limited edition extra through both the UK and AUS Markets. Most of the music for the show has been missing since the mid 80's. The project required me to go through each episode and edit, restore and master together 12 tracks which had never been released on any audio format before. Finally I produced the final Redbook audio CD for release.
Also was well known in the Drum & Bass production scene (circa 2002) after a small release of a collection of breakbeats that are now refered to as 'legendary' and are still heavily used today.

Personally,
I am a hard worker and hate to let anyone down. I'm really easy to get along with and believe in doing a job in the most professional way I can and getting it done right.
