It's the ear, not the gear.
As a professional recording and mixing engineer in LA for the last 9 years, I've been fortunate to work with some of the best producers, engineers, and musicians in the industry. That experience along with a dedicated passion helps me bring outstanding sound to every project I work with!

Long time professional in both studio and live sound. Experienced in recording and mixing all genres and ensemble sizes, from a single VO all the way up to full orchestra.

I'm a musician! I believe having a strong background in music (BA in Guitar) helps better serve any project as an engineer. I'm not busy trying to make a certain EQ work, I'm trying to make the song become what it needs to be.

I started out my audio career doing live sound, and still love helping a band create a great experience for a crowd! I still work FOH and love making a band sound as good as possible, and currently teach at Musicians Institute in Hollywood in the live sound program. I'm very experienced with many roles in live events, including FOH, Stage Management, and Production Management. I'm also proficient on many live consoles, and an Avid Certified Instructor for Venue consoles (D-Show, Profile, and SC48).
