With sound design experience spanning over 17 years, Dan has led and supervised on an eclectic mix of commercial, short/long form, and immersive work based both in the UK and abroad. As Creative Director, and alongside a talented team, Dan strives to push boundaries, utilising the latest in audio technology and always looking to expand his skillset. Dan has produced mixes for brands such as Adidas, Lurpak, FIFA, Camelot and Playstation, and has been awarded by Cllo Sports, Aerial Awards, Music & Sound Awards, and mixed the recent D&AD Black Pencil winner, Frontline19.
