I am a passionate music technologist, researcher and educator. Music is at the heart of my broad education and professional experience. Initially trained as a Tonmeister I specialise in Live Sound, working internationally with top performers from different traditions, with a focus on contemporary electroacoustic music. In addition to my music and technology skills I have developed an interest in the wider organisational, socio-cultural and historical aspects of the use of electronic amplification in the performance arts. A Masters degree in Arts Policy and Management (2008) and a PhD (2013) explored bridging the gap between technology, its creative use and broader discussions of the performance arts and society.
I offer a unique combination of experience, knowledge and education together with an ability to find original focus in complex situations and a dedication to share, not in a prescriptive way but as a stimulant for excellence. My broad basis allows me to connect theory and practice each supporting the other in original research and clear and inspiring teaching.
