My early goal was to get to a point where I could manifest the sounds and sonic characteristics that were in my head. I have come to a point through a lot of education and trial and error where I now feel able to do this consistently. Being able to help others achieve the same thing is tremendously satisfying.
I consider my job to be helping you present your music in exactly the way you want it presented–whether you have a clear vision or you need my help in guiding you towards your fully realized expression. I enjoy shining the most flattering light possible on performances while still retaining the humanness that helps people to connect to a piece of music.

I recently hired Eric to mix three songs and I was impressed with his patience and willingness to work with me to achieve the final results. Eric was great to work with and always took the time to listen to my feedback and make adjustments accordingly. The final mixes were good and matched my expectations. Overall, I would recommend Eric's mixing services to anyone looking for a professional mixing engineer.
Eric is great! I came to him after having a very poor experience with another engineer.
Eric took the time to listen to all of my thoughts and requests for the mix, and delivered a solid product in just one week.
His communication is fast and informative, and on top of it all he's a nice fella. Go figure!
