Started playing bass guitar from school and did my first recording session on my 16th Birthday and was hooked on the art of recording and engineering. Played in bands for a few years but wanted to work in a studio so built my own facility in the new forest called Recluse Studios with my best mate Anthony Haikney, eventually moved from there to Parklands Studios in Portsmouth. Provided Radio sessions for Power FM and Ocean Sound and built up a roster of artists that frequented the studios. Started Teaching at Southdowns College in 90’s and also took on live sound for some Progressive Rock acts like IQ / Spocks Beard / Pendragon / John Wetton taking me around the world doing gigs

Moved my studio back to the New Forest at Nomansland for 7 years until eventually building my own Aubitt Studio at my home in Southampton in 2001 and started operating from 2002

"Engineering, Recording and Production has been a passion since school and I consider myself extremely lucky to have explored the many avenues that both studio and live work have afforded me, long may it continue!"
