I am an ambitious audio engineer early in my career. My main goal is to grow with artists by helping them turn their vision and passion into a high quality, professional product to share with the world. Throughout the creative process, I want to cater to the artist in building a project with no judgment or limit no matter what it takes
I am a trained audio engineer from the suburbs of Philadelphia. I am early in my career looking to build credits and gain experience. I attended Temple University, where I earned a Bachelors Degree in Media Studies and Production. I began as an intern for one of the top facilities in Philadelphia, Studio Breed. At Studio Breed, I obtained incite on how to build a balanced work flow. Following college, I decided to enroll in a 6 month intensive audio program at Forge Recording Studios. It was a 1 on 1 mentorship with a professional audio engineer. Then I began an interning/assistant engineering at Forge, the time at Forge gave me experience with recording, mixing, and mastering projects, in and out the box, that included experience with an API 1608 mixing console. My time as an assistant engineer at Forge helped him with dealing with clients in a professional environment and developing hands on experience from recording sessions, that eventually taught me what it takes to be an engineer. I am a strong advocate in style and taste for sound. Building emotion, character and creating vibes will bring the best out of the artist's performance, in which will create a high quality project. I have a personal space for my services, but I can also offer outside recording studio time and services.

Working with Jordan was a smooth, easy and relaxing process. My bandmates and I were all very pleased with the work he did during and after our session as well as the finished product. He is very capable, knowledgeable, and accommodating, and anyone who chooses to work with him would say the same.
Jordan and I had several sessions together on a single we worked on. Not only is he incredibly educated, but is also very considerate and sincere during work. Mix was great!
I met Jordan through a mutual friend and had him mix and master one of my instrumentals. Jordan was professional and great to work with throughout the whole process and I was definitely pleased with the result of my track. I will be going back to him for sure. Thanks for your work, Jordan!
