A Resident of Hadfield, I am currently head the Live Sound course at Manchester’s School of Sound Recording. Prior to this, I spent ten years on the road as a touring live sound engineer, working for top bands such as Doves, Elbow and Snow Patrol, gaining a vast experience of live sound engineering, event production and touring.

I am still active within the live events industry, enjoying helping up-and-coming bands with their stage productions and have been instrumental in the development of the Bankswood Music festival in Hadfield.
