Tim's introduction to recording sound was at the age of 3 . He has been a gigging and recording musician since 1974 and was signed to EMI in 1979 with The Carthieves.
Tim spent 15 years working in studios recording, engineering and producing. His pursuit of sonic perfection led him to expand into the world of mastering when sticky tape and razor blades were the tools of the trade. Since that time he has cut thousands of records in hundreds of genres, from experimental jazz to death metal and from choral ensemble to rap.
Tim works as an independent mastering engineer, adding expertise to the creative process while maintaining the clients overall integrity and control.
The tools of the trade are now digital with high end analogue outboard, Tim's technical expertise has led to lecturing at university level, presenting workshops and frequent audio troubleshooting.
