Tape Operator / Assistant Engineer

Deep Blue Sound LTD

I spent a week as a Tape Operator / Assistant Engineer in Deep Blue Sound working with Jay Auborn. My duties included: general studio assistance and operating the multi-track (Pro Tools HD). I was drafted in to help on this recording session as Jay (producer/engineer) was heavily involved in the arrangement of the project and required someone to assist him with tape operation.

Recording Engineer

The Chapel Recording Studio

I spent 2 months assisting the re-build and launch of The Chapel Recording Studio in Hereford, a recording studio in an old Chapel which has video casting capabilities. My duties included; installation of audio equipment, testing of audio equipment, recording engineer for the opening event and general sound engineering to test acoustics. I really enjoyed the time I spent with the team and I am looking forward to sampling the products they can create. Can't wait to do further work with this studio, as an engineer or producer, in the future.

President

RNC Students Union

After spending some time within the RNC Students Union, I resigned as Entertainments Officer and applied for Union President. I won a majority vote of 80+ and the other party gained 11 votes. In the past, there were never any more than 20 to 30 voters, so this was a great achievement for me.

Being President was a very challenging role, as I had to take on several other positions (finance, welfare, GBL) due to the non-existent take up of Union positions. My duties included: meeting schedules, constitution amendments, security (premises/property), While I was studying at The Royal National College, I joined the Students Union staffing of SU Bar, employment/wages, welfare/well-being of members and advertisement.
