I'm a Brooklyn, NY based mixer and tracking engineer. I hold a degree in music from the University of Michigan, was previously on staff at Brooklyn Recording. I spend most of my free time pursuing that perfect pour-over cup and building bicycles. I used to like working on aircooled VW's, but I can't fit one in my apartment anymore.
The vast majority of the work I do is remote mixing for songwriters. Throughout my career, I've made a point of trying to make records that sound big, organic and inviting in whatever capacity that means to the project. I've got a well-tuned room that I trust and a solid rig that can crank out good mixes very quickly. If what you do is sincere and compelling, I'm in.

So how do we do this? It's pretty simple, actually.
You render continuous .wav files in your session, taking care to clearly label each track.
Load them into a folder and send them to me as a disk image or .zip via Dropbox or FTP or your choice.
You can alternately choose to send me a Pro Tools 10 or Logic 9 session if you like.
If you're wondering whether you should leave on any plugins, just give me a call and we'll talk it through. It would be pretty silly for us to try and work through getting a sound you've already created!
I price out mixes on a flat-rate system. This keeps the focus on quality, not the clock. A mix can take anywhere from a few hours to a couple full days. In the scope of a whole project, I find that it evens out.
If you've got a project rolling through but don't think you can afford hiring a mixer, give me a ring anyways. More often than not, we can work something out!
