  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: I'll work as hard as I can to give you something you're proud of!

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: I like the flexibility and trying to see another person's vision.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: I usually get asked about stems and 16-bit, 44.1khz WAV files are fine. I'll also even try mixing in mp3 stems if you want to get weird.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: Mixing and Mastering are two separate processes.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: I usually ask clients for five words they would use to describe the set of tracks they want me to work on. I also ask for any reference tracks that could be helpful.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Think of the larger picture!

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: A Shure SM57, an Apogee Duet, a MacBook Pro, Ableton Live, and a mini 25-key midi controller.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: My career path before this was computer science. I've been working on other people's music for the last year.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: My style is customer-focused. I try to deliver the best possible mix for my clients. I'm flexible and easy-going.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: I'd love to work Kendrick Lamar.

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Learn everything you can about a few plugins instead of dipping your hand into as many different plugins as you can. You need to know your tools in and out.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: I work on electronic music mostly.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: My biggest skill is being able to translate an emotion into moments in music.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I bring a creativity that most engineers lack. I'm first and foremost a producer, a sound designer, and a performer. I'll let you know how I feel about anything we work on together. I'll be honest and provide the best ideas I can.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: I break apart the larger process into smaller, manageable processes. I usually start by importing the tracks into Studio One, organizing them and routing them into different busses and submixes. From here, I work the faders across all the tracks to get a working level first, and then I proceed to EQ across all tracks to help build the mix I hear in my head. A lot of this decision making comes prior to actually mixing, so I come into the session prepared to make everything fit the way I want it to. I make conscious decisions of how and when the different elements of the track work together.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I mix everything in the box. I use a small set of studio monitors and a calibrated set of headphones by Sonarworks to mix correctly. In my hands, your mix should play back the way you want it to across many different systems.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: I'm inspired by a lot of producers and electronic artists. An ideal mix sounds like a Jon Hopkins song to me.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: I primarily mix tracks and get them ready for digital release, such as streaming.
