I am also a Colin (yay for Scottish roots). I had lived in Atlanta, Georgia for most of my life, but just relocated to Portland, Maine.
My day job is as an A/V technology specialist - I deal with corporate and live A/V systems with a focus on video conferencing/streaming technology and control interface programming. I do a some video and audio editing for the corporations that employ me. I also freelance as a FOH or M1 mixer in local venues when I get the chance.
During the nights, weekends, and every spare moment I do work as a dialog editor and sound designer for primarily independent films. My wife and I also team up to work as production sound recordists with me at the controls and her on the boom. We also write and produce when we have time in between sound-related work.
I am relatively new to film sound and it's been an awesome learning process. Thanks to resources like these, I'm constantly expanding my understanding... thanks, you guys and gals!
