About me

I am a fully qualified freelance Broadcast Location Sound Engineer based in Zürich, Switzerland.

With a Bachelor of Arts Degree focused on Sound Design and over 10 years of experience in the broadcast sound industry I always strive to deliver, crisp, clean sound recordings no matter what the conditions. Specialising in Reality TV, Documentary, Actuality and Television Commercials I have worked all around the world with networks such as Discovery Channel, National Geographic, BBC, History Channel, MTV, SRF, 3Sat, ProSieben and many more.

I have an extensive equipment list that can be tailored to any shoot whether it’s timecode synced multi track recordings, to just simple stereo to camera mixing.

Please see below a selection of credits from various shoots that I have worked on. For a full, downloadable credit list click here or view my IMDB page.
