Since 1976 I've been involved in the audio industry, including audio electronics maintenance, repair and modifications.  I have a background as a recording engineer and F.O.H. mixer for all styles of music.  In the 1980's I developed a very keen interest in acoustics and design.  This allowed me to work with a number of clients to design, construct and setup a number of world class and private recording studio's.  I have also continued to broaden my experiences in the field of acoustic design and installation, by working with clients that include halls, schools, churches and private recording studios.  Listed below are a few of the major projects I've been involved with in my career so far.
