I completed a four year Electronics Apprenticeship with the Ministry of Technology in 1970. I joined the BBC in June of that year as a Studio Manager in Radio, working on Light Entertainment, Drama and Pop music programmes.

In 1978 I made that perilous leap across the double divide; from Radio to Television and from the BBC to ITV, joining Tyne Tees Television.

Starting as a Boom Operator on the drama series' that Tyne Tees produced, I became a Sound Recordist six months later. I worked on the full range of programmes, including The Tube and the Band Aid Special. With the imminent franchise changes in 1988, I decided to "go freelance".

Some of the more interesting programmes and projects I have worked on include setting up The Whitehall Theatre for the nightly Jack Docherty Show that opened Channel 5, and documentaries that have taken me to Japan, Ethiopia and Peru.

I am a member of both The Institute of Broadcasting Sound (IBS) and The Association of Motion Picture Sound (AMPS). Ian
