I am a freelance sound recordist, based in Bristol. I’m one of a growing number of female sound recordists in the broadcasting industry. I trained at Bournemouth University and have been freelance for the last 22 years. I’ve recorded sound for both tape and film productions with my own kit which includes everything you’d expect a documentary sound recordist to carry.
I have experience of a wide variety of recording conditions and have worked in countries all over the world including Europe, Africa, The Middle East, Canada and Japan. I am used to working quickly and sensitively, often as a member of a very small team. I am often chosen for films where these qualities are important. I have sometimes stood in mud for a very long time and sometimes it’s raining too.
If I specialised in anything it would be observational documentaries as I really enjoying working with a variety of people, helping people tell their stories is an amazing privilege and I think I’m quite good at putting people at ease. My credits span a variety of things, a healthy mixture of everything including documentaries, magazine programmes, wildlife, corporate, news and some drama.
