1st Assistant Sound

(Boom operator) 

Over the past 20 years, I've had the pleasure of travelling through breath-taking locations in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, while helping to capture amazing performances on almost every kind of project.

It's been an absolute honour to work with some of the best crews in the world, and I look forward to working with you on your next project.

Equipment 

Along with an extensive amount of specialised equipment for Boom Operating, I also own a small timecode enabled audio recording system that is perfectly suited to: documentary, commercials, 2nd unit, effects gathering, and voice over work.

 

Additional equipment can easily be acquired through a local network of sound mixers, with a small amount of prep time. 

Call ahead to discuss the equipment requirements for your project.
