What did you do before joining dBs?
Before joining the team, I was a student at dBs Plymouth - studying on the Electronic Music Production Extended Diploma. It’s been great developing professional relationships with the tutors and wider staff team.
Why did you first get into ambient music production?
It was really during the first year of my degree with dBs in the Recording for Electronic Music Production Module, where working with Pete Day showed me how to experiment with various production techniques. The by-product of this was also listening to different genres of music, and eventually finding ambient music.
Any special areas of interest?
Analogue mixing is definitely where I find myself being drawn most of the time. We can thank the SSL AWS 924 for that!
What do you love most about what you do?
The best part of what I do is being able to witness, and assist, students in their development towards their career goals.
Tell us about your proudest career moment?
My proudest career moment would be releasing my first album on a record label. This helped reduce my sense of imposter syndrome and allowed me to progress as an artist in the ambient genre.
What do you get up to outside of your role at dBs?
Outside of dBs, I spend most of my free time in the studio producing ambient music; but also trying to discover new artists and albums to try and support the industry as best I can.
Tell us something our students may not know about you?
At Superbooth 2019, I took part in a competition by Native Instruments that saw me building Reaktor instruments based on a theme, and I won!
