Nothing makes me happier than helping music projects to reach their max.
Professional Musician with a Bachelor Degree in "Electric Guitar Performance" and a Specialization in "Music Production and Recording" with more than 20 years of experience working in the music industry. I have been involved in several projects either as guitar player and as producer / mixing engineer.
After living, working and studying for more than 5 years in Europe I traveled back to my home town and decided to have the option of working remotely with clients from all over the world. The SoundBetter platform seems to be the perfect solution for this purpose.
I am looking forward to work with you!

A: I would love to work with any artist eager to take the time to explore and experiment for the sake of finding their unique voice.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Use as much time as you need to capture a good sound and a good performance from the musicians. These two are in my opinion the pillars for a good recording. Avoid the "I´ll fix that later when mixing" approach. It is true that nowadays a lot of things can be fixed later but it will require way more time and energy and chances are that it won´t sound as natural as it should.
