Last year I tried snowboarding for the first time. I spent a week in Val-d'Isère. It took me a while to get the hang of it, but I can now link turns and control my speed. It is certainly a sport i want to continue.
As part of my new role within Scouting, ADC - Digital, I am responsible for utilizing technology to better bring the District together. We have recently decided that one of the best ways to do this is to start live streaming important news. I am soley responsable for this.
Live sound is something I am very passionate about. There is always a lot that goes into working with live bands, but as a sound engineer nothing gives you a better feeling than binging the faders up as the band start to play. This photo was from a charity NHS event.
During my time at The Scout Association, there was an increased demand for meetings to have more of a visual presence. Due to my past experience with AV and live sound, I was asked to lead the Monthly broadcast meetings in which we would have the whole staff body join.
Working with live bands drove me to try and capture the moment. I have recently begun multitrack recordings of bands, whereby each instrument is recorded as a seperate audio stream so that i can be re worked and mastered at a later point. producing a more realistic live recording.
My interest in photography lead me to drones and the idea of aerial photography. It allowed me to capture some stunning photos. I have also used my drone to capture large events from above. The Cubs100 celibration was one of these events.
One of my favourite projects was implementing a replacement Hyper-V cluster with direct attached storage for Scout Stores ltd.

As part of my interest into lighting and sound i recently purchased a set of 6 GLP Impression RGB moving heads. I stripped the units down, serviced, painted and re assembled all of the units.
