"Matt and I have worked on several series together. His skills in the dub are second to none. Matt is an expert at audio design, building up scenes to give extra drama, tension and reality.
He's great with music, superb at cleaning up my (occasionally!) badly recorded dialogue and he's also a really nice bloke."
