My name is Kyle Evans and I am a freelance sound recordist, boom swinger and sound editor based in Melbourne, Australia. My work encompasses film & TV production, live events, podcasts and radiojournalism. My favourite sound in the world is that of a medium-sized dog racing across muddy grass after heavy rain.
