GT has been working part time in the industry for a very long time and is a very capable, astute, experienced and knowledge audio engineer.

He's worked everything from small theatre shows to large festivals - there's few engineers that we would trust as much as we do GT to uphold the principles of service and sound quality that Prestige strives for.

Although primarily out backup engineer, GT is currently the primary on the Seriously Collins shows.

JP is an incredibly hard working and knowledgable audio engineer with a terrific ear and passion for production sound.
