What did you want to grow up to be?
Why aren’t you doing that now?
After I found video, I liked it more – I really liked the storytelling aspect.
If I could be a character in a movie – who would it be?
What’s your “Q” connection?
I worked with Matt Bennett on a few projects and we got along famously and then he got me in at Q when they were looking for someone to do some editing.
It’s really fun to mess around with everyone in the office but there is also a very high level of professionalism which makes you proud of the work you’re doing.
Most memorable Q project:
I really enjoyed doing the sound recording on the Direct Energy We are One project. It was the project where I learned the most about sound recording in the shortest time. It was a technically difficult project which forced me to do lots of research and use new equipment.
What makes you happy?
My wife and my bikes.
