I founded OM in 1996, in truth, working as a freelance voice 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, now 22 and proud. As we go from strength to strength, with the studios being lead by Juanma in London and Trine in Los Angeles, I'm set free to concentrate on directing and coaching, as well as my pet R&D projects: CDT and the GIVR methodology for game dialogue recording. Because of the R&D I'm also doing more game focused professional development 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!
