My name is Stephen and I'm a Recording/Mixing Engineer & Producer from the San Francisco Bay Area. I've spent a better part of the last decade cutting my teeth working for some of the most prolific Hard Rock and Heavy Metal bands to ever come roaring out of Northern California.

I strive not only to help you make music, but also to make history ;-)

Over the past 8 years, I've had the privilege of learning from some of the greatest minds and talents in the SF music scene, and have cut tracks in legendary bay area recording studios alongside Grammy winning producers and artists of all skill levels; from the woefully inexperienced to the heaviest of heavy-hitters. I believe the emotional content and impact of a performance are prolifically more important than what gear you're using, and I pride myself greatly on my ability to tune in to where the artist is coming from creatively, and alleviating their insecurities long enough to bring forth a phenomenal performance they never knew was within them.

I specialize in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Reggae and Jazz, but all genres of music speak to me in a way that allows me to adapt my mixing sensibilities to the unique characteristics and challenges of each song presented to me, and sculpting it into a coherent and powerful Sonic Image. I will work tirelessly to take your mix from Zero to Hero! If you don't get goosebumps, I'm not doing my job.

Music is a Celestial Thunder - Lets capture a little bit of yours ;-)


(Note : Hip-Hop & RnB artists PLEASE DO NOT send me your vocals to mix over a 2-Track beat!!)
