I was born and raised in England, where I developed a life-long interest in everything electrical. I’ve worked at IBM for 40 years, the last 24 in their Research division in the USA.

I’ve always enjoyed being in the countryside, having grown up not far from the New Forest in England ( I still live in a semi-rural location, very close to where “Woodcocks” was recorded, and am never happier than when I can be in a quiet place surrounded by the sounds of nature. I became interested in recording partly because my wife is an avid bird-watcher, but also because recording fascinates me and allows me to return to the places where recordings were made in a much more realistic fashion than photographs ever could. ”
