I'm a recording engineer based currently living in Japan. I have a degree in Audio and Music Technology and interned at Artillery Studios in London on an SSL G Series Console.
I've been playing in bands since I was 13 and started recording them not long after.
I pride myself on working to get great sounds and have built up a portable setup that allows me to record bands in almost any environment. To date I've recorded in churches, living rooms, village halls, sheds, guitar shops and even a couple studios.
I have a strong affinity for recording real drums and guitars in a natural setting, rather than using amp simulation and sample triggering as a crutch.
