"With a strong technological know how and a good work ethic, Simon has been our go-to sound recordist in the UAE for some time now."

"Absolute trooper! I had the privilege of working with Simon on an intense desert day shoot. Simon was extremely professional, knowledgeable and consultative. Simon worked quick, delivered great results and didn't complain about the heat once, even after having already spent a week working in the desert prior to our shoot!"
Maysam Faraj, Local Media UAE (Dubai)

"Simon is good professional; he's always ready on set and just spreads positive energy!"
