Sophisticated & innovative creations, solid but transparent sound shape & scope. A non-stop tweaking & smiling stereophonic samurai: Tats is a determined music & sound assassin. Always as serious as Hara-Kiri to lift any project up on to the red carpet. He is also handy in many aspects of post-production having both experience in film-editing with Final Cut Pro & is a 1st Dan (level) tea-maker, black, white and green.
