More about Darius

Darius comes from a musical, robotics, and engineering background; with over 8 years experience recording in the studio, stage, & in post production, has worked along side multi-Grammy-award winning recording artists, and is a UK National Champion in Robotics. He is also a classically trained violinist, violist, percussionist, & trombonist playing and competing on a national level.
This experience has led to rigorous organisation, work ethic, honing of skills, immaculate attention to detail, and an advanced understanding of everything from actor performance, acoustics, electronics, and computer science.

Since taking his skills behind the camera, Darius consistently provides a high quality, knowledgeable service; aiming to use his deep understanding of sound in pursuit of this.

More recently, he has taught himself to develop software and train Artificial Intelligence for advanced audio manipulation using programming languages like C++, Java, & Python.

Darius is known for understanding the whole picture; which is why he is often chosen to manage sound for complex situations on and off camera.
