About Me

I am a location sound recordist based in both Nairobi Kenya and Dar Es Salaam Tanzania and I have been involved in many different aspects of sound recording for most of my life, specialising in location sound recording for tv and film to a professional level for my entire adult life. Combining a large well of experience, an in depth knowledge of sound, video and film equipment, and the use of my Sound Devices 442, 704t 4 channel recorder allows me to capture the best audio possible on any location production.
My philosophy is that to be successful in the tv and film industry flexibility is very important, that is why I strive to be as logistically flexible and open minded as possible for the client or production.
If you are looking for a sound recordist, boom operator or sound assistant in the Kenya, Tanzania or Africa as a whole, I can help you find what you need.
if you are coming from abroad don't waste your budget on travel expenses, book a sound recordist local to your job. If you have any questions or you would like to make a booking please get in touch.
