I founded OM in 1996, in truth to be a freelance director and audio engineer so I could spend more time with my children. I built a recording studio next to my then home in Pannal, Yorkshire. That was the start. OM grew with my kids into adulthood. OM now, 21 years on, comprises three studios in London and one in Los Angeles. As OM goes from strength to strength, run by Juanma and Vic in the UK and Trine in the US, I'm set free to concentrate more on my pet R&D projects: CDT and the GIVR methodology for game dialogue recording. Plus I'm getting deeper into dialogue consultation and training with developers and publishers. Because of the R&D I'm also doing more game focused professional development work with actors. For 10 years I've been working with The Drama Centre, The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and now with LAMDA providing professional development coaching. On a personal side I'm into sustainability, the environment, collecting swords, comedy and modifying Triumph motorcycles. I'm a Ukie Video Game Ambassador (VGA) and love being a BAFTA Guru. Goes with the grey hair I guess!
