Our friendly, approachable team work tirelessly to ensure our clients are the happiest in the business. We take great pride in what we do here. Everyone, including the management and runners have hands-on, audio production experience - whilst most people are musical too. So everyone brings something to the audio-table, so to speak.
Seb comes from a musical family and grew up playing violin at the Royal Academy of Music, where he studied as a nipper. Rather unoriginally he decided that making Drum & Bass was far cooler so ditched all that and studied sound engineering at the London School of Music. It was there he fell in love with Sound Design, then moved on to work at various Soho post houses and recording studios before setting up SNK, with his business partner Kayvan, in 2005.
Hands on as an engineer for about 10 years he ran sessions for the worlds biggest brands and worked with many famous faces. These days Seb tends to focus on working with the wider team - making sure everyone's happy - the studios are all working brilliantly and spending money on equipment we probably don't need!
Mainly to keep his grandmother happy, he still occasionally plays the violin.
Sam was once described as 'the best audio producer' in London, and we agree! His input guaranteed that projects run like clockwork and at the end of the day, we have very, very happy clients.
And if there is ever anything that he can't answer (which is rare) he'll know someone who can!
These days, Sam is spending an increasing amount of time meeting, greeting and shouting from the rooftops about how wonderful SNK Studios is! His history with the business and background as an Audio Producer put him in the unique position to understand exactly what clients need and help them to get the best out of their time at the Studios.
Sam graduated with a degree in Creative Sound and Electronic Music from Cambridge Ruskin in 2005. His passion for music helped secure his career in the recording industry and within a few months he was managing sessions at Soho Recording Studios, for artists including Paul McCartney, JLS and One Direction to name just a few. He joined the SNK family in 2009 and never looked back!
Dan manages the busy studio schedule, supporting our clients through every step of the production process. Bringing a wealth of experience with him - Dan spent 7 years as Operations Manager for Transmedia Link, followed by 6 years at Production Company SOH as their Studio Coordinator. He joined SNK back in July 2014 and has never looked back!
Outside of work, Dan is an accomplished drummer having drummed his way across the continent! Unfortunately he is also Hull City fan, but we can't all be perfect…
Jack joined SNK in 2016 having worked as a Sound Designer at 5A Studios in Soho. He helps to run the facility here - producing projects for some of our biggest clients and bringing a wealth of knowledge to the table.
He also has extensive experience co-ordinating ADR sessions for drama’s and feature films and has worked with some of the biggest names in the business.
Jack is a keen swimmer who in his teens was a national qualifier - and at one point ranked 2nd fastest in the country for 50m Breaststroke!
Rob joined SNK Studios in February 2014 and spent nearly 7 years as our Senior Engineer before recently stepping into the newly created Head of Engineering role. Whilst Rob still gets stuck in working closely with clients in the studio, he also now shares his time overseeing our team of 12 in-house Sound Engineers across a range of areas from both a creative and technical perspective.
Rob has mixed countless TV and cinema ads for the likes of Mitsubishi, Carlsberg and Paddy Power, film trailers for hit movies including Vox Lux, Parasite and Gulliver's Travels and promos for NBC, BSkyB, Discovery and long form work including CBeebies series Sarah & Duck.
Rob has a musical background having studied Acoustics with Music at Southampton University. In his spare time he enjoys producing music and laying floor boards!
Al spent a year at SNK as an intern during 2014-15 before going back to uni to complete his degree in Music and Sound Recording (Tonmeister) at the University of Surrey. We were delighted that he decided to return to SNK as a fully fledged engineer and music composer after graduating. He's an invaluable member of the team and clients love working with him. He's produced the audio for literally hundreds of radio and TV ads, recorded ADR for top global TV shows and features - and composed original music for campaigns including Mitsubishi, James Villas and many others.
Al might look unwell, but don't worry - he's just been working on his studio tan - all part of the job! A youth spent in HMV has left him with a fairly expansive CD collection. He also had a minor hit in Brazil with a Daft Punk / Eye of the Tiger mash-up!

Seán graduated in late 2015 from Dundalk Institute of Technology, in Ireland with an Honours Degree in 'Production of Music & Audio'. He then moved to Dublin where he worked at Mutiny Post for about 9 months as Sound Editor and Assistant Engineer. At Mutiny Seán worked on some fantastic animations, tv shows and short films for the likes of Brown Bag Films, Amazon and the BBC. Sean then moved to London where he soon joined the SNK team.
He's currently taking an integral role in developing SNK's foreign dubbing offering, having succesfully mixed and delivered hundreds of hours of programmes and features for world renowned content creators.
Sean has a true passion for anything sound related, in his spare time he likes to produce synthwave & minimal electronic music, explore the city or head out to local gigs.
Gabriel studied sound engineering in Paris and comes from great audio-stock! His mother is a singer and father worked in the cinema business.
After graduating he did multiple internships in different facilities including recording studios, post-production facilities and even a start-up focused on creating a new midi controller!
In 2017 Gabriel moved to London to develop his love for audio post, working as a runner at Evolutions while spending any free-time he did have working on short films and doing other freelance work. SNK are delighted to have scooped up this talented young man in early 2018 and amongst other things, along with Sean and Chris B he is helping develop the busy foreign dubbing department.
In his free time Gabriel produces abstract hip hop music, collects weird electronic instruments and occasionally builds open-source synths (which are not all successful)!
