Tell us about yourself
Music Producer, Recording, Mixing and Mastering Engineer based at GloWormRecording, Glasgow
Why are you involved in Scottish music?
I love the sense of community around Scottish music, how inclusive it is and how this contributes to an enormous level of creativity!
Any particular career highlights?
Working with orchestras.. I’ve had the opportunity, over the years, to do work with a few different orchestras, both as a performer and as a mixing engineer.. and I have loved the challenge every time! Mixing the audio for the Celtic Connections TV productions of the Qawwali Project with the SCO was amazing, as well as Niteworks and the SSO performing together some of the material I had the honour to produce!
What are your plans for the future?
The last 4 or 5 years have been crucial for developing my mastering skills… I’d like to develop that side of my engineering further and perhaps look into mastering for Dolby Atmos over the next few years..
