I have been working as a mastering engineer since 2001 when I joined the ranks of the now defunct Ideal Mastering. It was right after I had finished studying at the School of Audio Engineering (SAE) in London. Although I had no real experience in mastering I was brought in to fill the gap of ‘2nd engineer’ as the head engineer was due to leave…..but after 6 months I found myself in the rather strange position of being the only and therefore head mastering engineer! It was an intense time of learning, learning and more learning!
When Ideal Mastering closed it’s doors to the public in August 2008 I bought the mastering suite from the owner and opened JM Mastering on the 1st September 2008 and moved from Holloway Road to the studio complex in Hornsey where I have been ever since.
People often ask me if I am in band and the answer is yes, I am in an extreme metal band called Bloodwork. I used to be one of the guitarists but due to time and other issues I am now ‘just’ the main vocalist. Our debut album was released in 2014 and we’re busy writing the music for the second one….clearly we’re in no hurry!
I love music and everything about it, I love the getting the best out of my clients music and helping them to achieve their musical goals. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
