I was born in Auckland, New Zealand. I grew up with a love for music, playing in bands and seemed to always be the guy who knew how to best work the sound gear.
After my days of being a government sponsored surfer / student I landed a job at Revolver Studios in Auckland city. Quickly learning my trade by some good dips in the deep end of things and being inspired by some great people such as Tchad Blake and many others.
At the ripe old age of 21 I flew to the other side of the planet to work at Real World Studios, although that only was possible for a few weeks I soon took the role of house engineer at West Side Studios in London which was owned by Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley. It was an excellent two years of sharpening my skills.
I moved back to New Zealand in 1997 to help build a studio and work with Neil Finn recording his solo projects, it was such a privilege to work with Neil and many other of New Zealand’s top artists during those years.
I briefly lived back in London, Sydney and Nashville before finding my Beautiful wife Tasha in Hereford, England.
In 2003 I setup shop in Chapel Lane Studios and have been based there ever since.
It’s been a great journey recording, producing and mixing so many records, I am fully passionate about mixing and stoked that i get to mix full time now.
On the home front Tasha and i have 3 children, Annaleisha, Levi, Ruby and another on the way.
My faith is of the utmost importance to me, I love to focus on Managing Sounds for Maximum Spiritual Impact!
