Having been continuously employed within the audio visual industry for over thirty years, I have worked as an Operational Technician; in Programme Production; and as a Rental & Event Staging Engineer. But for the major part of my career, whilst employed by the UK’s leading AV suppliers and contractors, I have designed and specified professional AV & ICT systems for Corporate, Leisure and Educational sectors.

Now I provide specialist knowledge to Designers, Architects, Interpretive Consultants, Media Producers, Operators and other Project Teams who require truly independent expertise to get the best results from their budget, for their specific application.

I have particular experience in the integration of technologies for Leisure applications such as Museums, Galleries, Heritage & Visitor Attractions, and Brand Centres.

My skill set and knowledge enable me to provide invaluable advice at all stages of a project, from concept to commissioning.
