Currently employed as the Senior Technical Support Engineer at AIR Studios in London, I also undertake commisions from private studios and musicians.
I can supply advice and diagnosis of technical problems and can provide help whether your problem is a simple wiring question or a vintage recoreding desk that no longer works as it should.
I have experience of most major manufacturer's products and have worked with Apple Macintosh computers since the mid 80s.
My workshop is fully equipped to deal with most problems and I also undertake the renovation of vintage audio equipment which van include the tracking down of obsolete parts or the manufacturing of equivalent electronic circuitry to keep a favourite piece of equipment functioning.
This web site shows some of the projects I have done and others that I am currently working on.
Some of my album credits can be found on the web site.
