I am the Studio Director at Heliport Studios, and have over 20 years experience as a music producer, mix engineer and song-writer.

I run one of only a few SSL Duality studios (the world's number one console used to mix U2, Coldplay, Muse etc) in Australia with all the classic gear like Studer A827 2" tape machines and valve compressors. I have been mixing and tracking bands for radio release for over a decade, and have worked with all the major labels like Sony, Warner and Universal. I have engineered and mixed for producers such as John Merchant (Barbara Streisand, MIKA, The Bee Gees), John Hudson (Tina Turner, The Beatles) etc. I use the mixing techniques of all the great mixing engineers that I have learnt throughout my career. To put this all into perspective the Rihanna track "Towards the Sun" was recently developed with us at Heliport Studios.
