What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I will do my best!
What do you like most about your job?
Combination of Art and Science, communication with interesting people, listening to the great music every day and helping musicians.
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
"What gear do you use? How much does it cost?" and other questions related to the gear.
There's a lot of hardware and software out there, I'm only as good as my knowledge and experience, having an expensive piece of gear does not guarantee a perfect mix, nothing does! I will do my best and I will use what's in my disposal to make sure your mix sound great.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
I can't "save" bad recordings. My work is to make a good record sound even better.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
I am just another set of ears with experience that will help your mix.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I started to write songs in 2006 but it wasn't enaugh for me. I wanted to work with the sound, that's why I started mixing in 2008. Studying is a life long process, with every song I mix I became more and more confident. Now I can see how far I went with what I do, still I have a lot to learn, but my passion to music is what makes me wake up every morning and do my job.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I did a lot of songs, many of them were pop, other big chunk of songs were pop-rock, I also like to work on chillout music (and related) and it's the third biggest portion of songs I worked on.
What's your strongest skill?
Hardwork and Will
What do you bring to a song?
First of all another set of ears!
I help emphasize good qualities and abate not so good qualities of the song.
What's your typical work process?
I listen, take notes and start doing what I need to do. Gain staging, paning, EQ, compression and other creative effects to make the song sound better
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
My heroes are Mark "Spike" Stent, Tony Maserati, Dave Pensado, Graham Cochrane and many others
