I’m a Amsterdam based freelance location sound recordist with over twenty experience working on observational documentaries, current affairs programmes and corporate productions.
I’m particularly interested in working on projects that lean towards any of these end results: educational, ethical, artistic, good-cause’, co-operative, collaborative, meaningful, pro-social. And I’m particularly interested in working with any of these general areas of subject matter: sustainability, environment, society, psychology, philosophy, linguistics, the arts, social history, the natural world, politics.
I’m a member of AMPS (THE ASSOCIATION OF MOTION PICTURE SOUND). I have a current public liability insurance policy. I hold a valid passport, I have a good level of conversational English and as any sound recordist should, I have a valid ATA Carnet.
My main kit comprises a Sound Devices 833 12 channel mixer/triple-media recorder which enables me to simultaneously supply high quality Bwav files as well as smaller mp3 files for transcription purposes. I have several different microphones for dialogue recording depending on the environment/circumstances and also a wireless handheld, presenter stick mic’. I have 8 radio mic kits and seven Tentacle sync timecode solutions to keep my mixer and up to seven cameras in frame-accurate sync all day. I back up all my recordings.
Also have 8 dpa 6066 headsets great for livestreams
Been very happy self employed since 2009 and started as a location sound recordist in 1998.
