Web design & development is my main source of income, but there is a lot more to me than that.
Today’s work market demands are for the multi skilled. I qualified as a electrician after leaving school & likely because of a background in music, I have always had a geeky interest in all things technical with particular regards to audio & video technology.
Prior to doing a design degree as a mature student I had a history of technical & creative roles in sound, video & broadcast technology.
What kind of stuff?
I have worked in technical roles in music recording studios, radio stations & film/TV tech support including a spell working for channel 5 TV as a broadcast engineer. I have designed & installed radio stations for colleges & community radio stations.
I also partnered in a commercial music recording studio for a number of years so I’ve got superb mixing ears & a good knowledge of audio processing such as EQ & compression. The main skill in running a successful music studio I quickly learned is being calm enough to deal with highly strung musicians!
