Sound Engineer from London, United Kingdom
Ex- BBC Sound Engineer/Designer/Music Specialist. A Podcast Producer and natural storyteller who also makes great videos 18 years of experience in Sound Engineering is no joke. 10 years of those have been in BBC News on programmes such as Newshour on the Worldservice, World at One on Radio 4 and Up All Night on Five Live: operating mixing desks, recording and mixing reports, training and assisting journalists in the use of audio equipment and carrying out outside broadcasts. Since 2010 I’ve worked in various organisations such as Amnesty International, National Portrait Gallery, Jewish Care and in education delivering high quality sound recordings, sound mixes/design for video, live mixes and training.  Unusually for a sound engineer, I’m also creative with a nose for a good story. During a stint as a news producer on World Today I was described as a “natural” by the Editor and indeed I had just gotten a scoop during my training. My creativity though is best displayed in my activities as a musician and poet. I have been a featured poet in The Guardian and won the Lowes Dickinson Prize in 2014. Please listen to my podcast for Apples and Snakes to see how my technical and creative skills plus my story telling skills can all come together to create a captivating journey through sound. I’m also qualified to Masters level in ethnographic and documentary filmmaking and I had the honour of working with BAFTA and Emmy Award winning producer Paul Woolwich at Amnesty International who said of my video skills “You’re great at making something out of nothing”. The highlight of my time at Amnesty International was seeing a video I produced being used on CNN by Christiane Amanpour that resulted in two disabled refugees being reunited with their father in German. What you won’t find on my resume I’m a BAME woman so employing me has the added bonus of ticking all the right boxes in your equal opportunities policy but don’t let that sway you ;-) Please reach out to discuss any opportunities you may have that you think would suit me in any way.
