I used to study trombone performance at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, and now I've moved onto the Audio Engineering course here, at SSR Manchester.
I'm currently on my third phase of study, doing Audio Post-Production under the tutelage of Paul Maunder and Dean Covill, who both provide an excellent insight into the industry, providing real-world examples of work and helping me to gain the knowledge necessary to progress in this field.
Right now, I'm working on a few projects, including a short film named "Schrodinger's Waltz", and I've also just finished recording tracks with a local band named Twisted Tubes, who I luckily managed to introduce to head of audio Martin Desai, and we were able to record in Spirit, as a part of a class for the Advanced Studio Phase. This experience helped provide me with a great taster of my next phase, not only with use of the fantastic equipment that's available for us, like the Neve VRP 60/48, and microphones such as the Neumann U87 or Coles 3048, but also because I had a chance to observe tutors like Steve Boyce-Buckley doing what they do best.
Once I've finished my current phase, I'm hoping to move onto the Advanced Studio and Live Sound phases. I'm also working towards a Level 6 NCFE, which is the equivalent of an Honors Degree.
My current aspirations include working for a company such as the BBC, or on the set of a Hollywood movie. I would also love to own a recording studio...
