WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU


Hello and welcome to my corner of the internet! I'm Bruce, a technician specialising in theatre, events and digital media.

I've got a substantial sound bias, with multiple music qualifications, audio production certifications and years of experience in live mixing and digital audiomanipulation. Whether you need someone to design entire soundscapes for your production, efficiently set up reinforcement kit, or simply tap 'Go' occasionally, let me make some noise for you.

Need some images, videos and/or webpages designed, edited and/or created? Hand-tailored to your needs and specs, from the smallest social media icon to the largest billboards, I'm here for you through every milestone of the digital media lifecycle from inception to publishing and maintenance. (I'm also mere weeks away from completing the Photoshop ACA exam, at which point I'll be your very own Adobe-certified designer!)

Everyone in technical theatre is after that all-rounder; someone willing, friendly and knowlegeable enough to resolve any issue efficiently. I pride myself on the above, as well as my excellent and memorable service.

But enough buzzword-laden blurb; have a scroll down, and let me know what I can do for you.

ABOUT BRUCE


BRUCE ASHER

A lifelong passion for live performance, complimented by two degrees in Theatre Studies, are helping me realise my ambition to work in a technical capacity in theatres, with a bias on design, operation and reinforcement of sound. Entirely self-taught, these skills developed in part through work with vintage function band:


A consummate all-rounder with a strong foundation in digital media and IT management (ITIL certified), my friendliness and willing are surpassed only by my desire to deliver the best service possible.

I also own the much-coveted full UK driving licence and my own vehicle.
