Check out a few examples of projects I've worked on below.

I worked with the BBC Studios Factual team to bring to life the in-depth narrative podcast ‘Legends Fall in the Making’ (aired on BBC Radio 1Xtra and BBC Sounds). This podcast won Silver in the Arts category at the British Podcast Awards 2022.
I also worked on the investigative series "Believe In Magic" with Jamie Bartlett (2023) for BBC Sounds, and worked with the BBC Science department on the mini-series "Stay Young, with Michael Mosley" (2023) for BBC Radio 4.

(Development Executive, BBC Studios)
"Nicky was consistently brilliant – highly efficient, hard working, incredibly calm under pressure and he produced some brilliant recordings and edits. It was a joy working with him."
Sound Design, Radio & Music
As part of the BBC Sound First development program, I was commissioned to create original sound design for a poem for BBC Radio 3 The Verb's 'Something new' series. Here, I was lucky enough to work with acclaimed poet and novelist Jacob Polley on his brilliant poem 'Speaker' celebrating the BBC's centenary (aired on BBC Radio 3 07/04/2023).
Listen to my entry piece here:
Listen to 'Speaker' here:
I have released music under Brownswood Recordings via the Future Bubblers scheme, and have created production music for Sony Music Publishing under 'KPM Shorts'. The last few years I have worked closely with Radio alHara, curating radio shows and helping on Soho Radio's 'DJs Against Arms Sales' campaign with The Sonic Liberation Front.
"I felt like I was in some kind of wonderful sound bath."
