Head of Production
Sam guarantees that projects run like clockwork and at the end of the day, we have very happy clients. And if there is ever anything that he can't answer (which is rare) he'll know someone who can.
Sam graduated with a degree in Creative Sound and Electronic Music from Cambridge Ruskin. 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!
Head of Engineering
Rob joined SNK Studios in 2014 and spent nearly 7 years as our Senior Engineer before recently stepping into the role of Head of Engineering. Whilst Rob still gets stuck into Engineering projects he now shares his time overseeing our team of about 15 in-house engineers ensuring everything, creative and technical is top-notch.
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.
In his spare time he enjoys producing music and laying floor boards!
Senior Audio Producer
Tobie brings over 12 years experience to the team having worked as an Audio Producer in both Milan and London on hundreds of TV, radio and cinema ads for big name brands such as Coca Cola and Amazon. She spent 6 years at Hogarth Worldwide before joining SNK mid-2021 .
Tobie prides herself on delivering excellent customer service and ensuring her clients always feel valued and happy with the content she delivers. In her spare time she likes to drive around town in her red Vespa, and despite speaking Italian fluently and having worked in Milan, is a lightweight when it comes to prosecco - she's on the floor after 2 glasses of fizz!
Dan manages the busy studio schedule along with his fantastic team of Bookings Coordinators, supporting our clients through every step of the production process and making sure the right Engineer ends up in the right room - which is no mean feat! 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.
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…
Dubbing & ADR CoOrdinator
Gabriel studied Sound Engineering in Paris and after graduating did multiple internships in different facilities including recording studios, post-production facilities and even a start-up focused on creating a new midi controller!
He 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 have enjoyed watching him flourish ever since. Gabe now heads up ADR and Foreign Dubbing coordination at the facility. Together the guys deliver work for all the main streaming platforms, and with the wider studios team often record ADR for award winning dramas and features.
In his free time Gabriel produces abstract hip hop music, collects weird electronic instruments and occasionally builds open-source software synths! Which are not all successful!
Audio Producer & Bookings coordinator
Working alongside the Bookings and Production team, Jess helps to co-ordinate the day to day running of the facility - doing a sterling job of supporting clients and projects from initial enquiry to final mix and delivery.
A lady of many talents, when Jess isn't practicing the piano or flying off to glamorous destinations she can be found putting her editing skills to good use – having gained a BA in Film & Television from Brunel University.
James Trusson joined the Engineering team having previously spent four years at Aquarium Studios as a re-recording mixer, sound designer and ADR engineer. He's worked on TV shows for the likes of Sky, BBC, Channel 4, Netflix and Amazon Prime.
Films James has worked on have been screened to critical acclaim at festivals all over the world including Cannes, Toronto & Sundance. James has also worked on adverts and branded content for the likes of Google, YouTube, Android, Red Bull, Ladbrokes and UNICEF.
In his spare time you can find James playing guitar in indie rock bands or getting stuck in at 5-a-side football pitches across London. He’s also recently branched out as a pop vocalist, much to the dismay of his neighbours!

Sound Engineer & Composer
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!

Charlie Frost joined the Engineering team in October of 2021 having previously started his career at Wisebuddah Studios, before venturing into the world of freelance and working for some of our amazing clients such as NBC and Liquid Violet. He studied Music Production at Brighton University, which left him with a passion for Post Production and a collection of over 200 beer mats! We are really excited to have Charlie on the team (even though, to the dismay of some of the team- he lives and breathes Liverpool FC).
Seán graduated from Dundalk Institute of Technology in Ireland with a degree in Music & Audio, he then moved to Dublin where he worked at Mutiny Post as an 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 where he has since worked across the Foreign Dubbing team and has now settled as an Engineer where he's worked on campaigns for Amazon, Playstation, Heiniken and many others.
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.
Tom joined the SNK team in February of 2019 having worked as Head Runner and then Transfer Engineer for Grand Central Recording Studios. Having graduated from the The Academy of Contemporary Music with a degree in Creative Music Production and played guitar with the 'Brass, Wind and Fire' Big Band back in Leicestershire, Tom now lives and breathes sound nearly as much as he indulges an unhealthy obsession in the 'mighty Leicester City FC'!
One of his biggest achievements includes composing original music for the likes of Panasonic, The Sun Bingo and E-On. An interesting fact about Tom is that he got a black belt in Tae Kwon Do when he was 14, so we will all make sure we stay in his good books!
Assistant DUBBING & ADR COORDINATOR
Jack graduated from the esteemed Tonmeister degree course with a passion for all things music and audio, he spent his third year placement at Sky in the dubbing department.
Jack started his life at SNK as part of the Front of House team, and since moved through the Dubbing team to settle now as Assistant Dubbing & ADR CoOrdinator working closely with Gabriel on this important area of the business. Together the guys deliver work for all the main streaming platforms, and with the wider studios team often record ADR for award winning dramas and features.
Junior Dubbing Engineer

He has also composed music and sound design for dance performances, design exhibitions and short films. Before venturing into the world of sound he studied modern literature before realising he was spending more time in the rehersal room with his band than studying. In his spare time Marco loves to read, organise gigs and record mixes for othe online radio he set up with his friends during lockdown. He is also from Bologna and makes a mean r
Co-Founder & Director
Seb has been building the company up since the beginning back in 2003. Hands-on for the first 10 years or so as a composer and engineer, Seb has written music and run sessions for some of the world's biggest brands.
These days his focus is 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!
Seb loves working closely with the trusted design, build and acoustician teams who have been involved in the creation of the beautiful facility on Tottenham Court Road, where the business has been based since 2010.
In his spare time when he's not hanging out with his three awesome kids Arthur, Edie and Roman, much to the amusement of his colleagues, he hides in the garage and builds model train sets!
Karen's (and my gran's) mantra is, 'If you look after the pennies, the pounds will take care of themselves'! When Karen isn't looking at spreadsheets she's lavishing attention on her 2 year old Cockapoo, Yogi. But on a Friday, her favourite companion is a perfectly mixed Cosmo.
Justyna loves to find ways to be more efficient every day and it all starts with getting the figures right. To her, finance is fun and exciting and it wont be long until she's an ACCA qualified accountant. Her childhood dream was to be an astronaut, but the numbers didn't stack up!
Executive Creative Director
Whether it’s a new project or her hair, Kathleen sees a blank canvas to be filled with colour. She approaches everything with bravery, which is probably why she walked out of her interview! Fortunately, she stuck around to share her unique creative outlook.
Senior Audiobook Production Manager
Zoe has had a life that so exciting that it could easily belong to a character in one of the audiobooks she produces. She began her career with a passion for drama and stories, working as a dresser at the Lincoln Theatre Royal. She then went out into the world to make some stories of her own: working for a jewellery family in Rome, going to Paris to discover her calling as a writer, and then returning to London to discover the power of audio through her work with the RNIB. She has a passion for recording audiobooks that unite, educate and entertain. And watch this space, because her ambition is to write her own book, and produce the audio version.
Barnaby is proof that disobeying your parents pays off: he landed his first job in radio after sneaking into a gig underage. He’s since gone on to work in sales planning, creative copywriting, commercial programming and audio production. After many years of being referred to as 'Barney' he now has a lifelong vendetta against anything of the prehistoric, purple and green variety (Jurassic Park, aubergines and Lou Ferrigno are all deeply triggering.) And despite the surname, he wishes it be made clear that he does not own a chocolate confectionary company. Cats, tatts and flash-fiction are all his bag. But not flash-fiction of tattooed cats. Just to be clear.
HEAD OF MUSIC SUPERVISION & SYNC LICENSING
With 17 years experience in the industry Julian has taken the journey through, vinyl, tape, minidisc (that little thing that never really did go anywhere), CD, through to the world of digital. He has worked at senior levels within record, publishing and management companies in Sync, A&R, Marketing, Management and Music Production. If he were on Death Row, his last ever song would be Marvin Gaye’s ‘Heard it Through the Grape Vine’… he’d kick back, relax and loose himself in the music. His mantra is ‘Where words fail music speaks’, so much so that he has this tattooed down one side of his torso. Don’t ask him to see it though, he’ll never show you.
Julian's team of music supervisors and ex-advertising creatives understand and appreciate the power and influence music has in defining a brand, a piece of footage or a creative vision. They’ll search for the right piece of music, be it commercial or non-commercial and through long standing relationships with rights holders from all over the world, can clear all the necessary rights needed to ensure peace of mind for you.

PA to Directors
Char loves to organise other people’s lives but struggles when it comes to her own! A proud Essex girl, there are two things she does every day without fail, write out her to do lists and top up her fake tan. Char joined the SNK family back in 2016 providing PA support to our Company Directors.
