about me

I am an Audio Engineer by trade and have been working in Audio Post Production, Radio,Theatre and Advertising since 2000. Originally from Germany I have lived in London for 5 years in the 1990’s before moving to New Zealand where I have lived and worked for the past 13 years. I returned to the UK in June last year.


I have worked in  a very busy Post Production and Music Composition Company ‘Soundrax’ in central Auckland working mainly in television advertising and also assisted James Hall with Music Composition and recording.

I spent many years working in radio production and engineered two weekly pre-produced youth radio shows for New Zealand on Air (NZ Government Funding Body), ‘Te Puutake’ and ‘The Source’. They were produced at Montage Recording Studio and my own studio.

I continued to work in Film & TV on a freelance basis working for Adworks Ogilvy (now Ogilvy), Soundtrax and South Pacific Video Production (Series 3 to the current Series 9 of Piha Rescue, Noise Control and Last Chance Dogs.).


I currently work in my own small studio setup in Totnes where I do audio post mixes. I am pleased that I can still maintain my contract with NZ based production company ‘South Pacific Video Productions’ and work remotely on their projects.

studio setup: Pro Tools 9, Digi 003, Waves 7, SFX Library on Hard-drive.

Personal Statement

I love sound and anything to do with sound. I greatly enjoy working with other people on projects but am also perfectly happy just getting on with things.

Being able to work remotely for clients means I can still keep connected to the TV/Film world while living with my family in beautiful Devon.
