After completing an MSc in Sound Design at the University of Edinburgh, Colin headed south and began climbing the ranks of audio post-production. After several years in London he moved west to Bristol, motivated by the city’s reputation for factual and natural history programming. After a short stint as a freelancer he joined Evolutions on a permanent basis in 2019.
Colin prides himself on his can-do attitude, meticulous attention to detail and creative problem solving. He takes a narrative approach to mixing, carefully considering all sonic elements and how they help tell a story. Calm and proactive under pressure, he relishes the chance to collaborate with clients. Regardless of the genre, Colin has a genuine drive to ensure every project sounds as great as it possibly can.
Away from the mixing desk Colin can usually be found running, cycling, or on Saturday afternoons, playing football in Bristol’s famous Down’s League.

What people say about Colin
“Colin is thoughtful, diligent and imaginative with his work, he is also quick and efficient. Each episode of Countryfile presents its own set of challenges and I am yet to see Colin phased in any way, in fact he always seems to enjoy the challenge and his work certainly enhances the show. Above all though and perhaps most importantly he is an absolute pleasure to work and spend time locked in the dub with!”
Alex Baxter, Producer, Countryfile
