I’m Oli Trenouth and welcome to my website. I’m a Media Technology Developer (a fancy job title for a software developer) and video editor at the National Media Museum in the UK. I’m a little too interested in server technology, and have around 15 years experience in audio and video applications. I’m passionate about the user experience when it comes to software, and believe that simplicity is always the key, no matter how complex the underlying application.
In my spare time I also freelance as a live sound designer and engineer for numerous regional theatres, and I’m a keen digital photographer. Hopefully that goes some way to explaining the strange mix of categories on this blog!
I live in the North of England (the top-left bit of Yorkshire to be precise), and like many of us I’ve grown up with technology. I’m not sure how I slipped into media production and technology – maybe I wasn’t paying much attention that year – but I’ve spent 15 years working in the industry now and I’ve filled my brain with an unnecessary amount of knowledge about digital video and audio production.
I hope you find something of use here.
Thanks for visiting,
