I believe that you can’t fake soul, either you got it or you don’t. I only work with people who’ve got soul; whether it’s through your music or who you are as a person. I studied Audio Engineering in college at Temple University, and have been engineering for 5+ years now. I’ve worked at multiple studios across Philly, and I currently run my own.
What's good and groovy, I'm an award-winning audio engineer and producer. I graduated from Temple University in 2018, majoring in Media Studies and Production with a concentration in audio engineering. My passion for music began at age 12 once I began playing guitar. Since then, I've played over a hundred shows, and engineered hundreds of sessions. My love for all things audio led me to choose the audio engineering track at Temple, and thereI studied under and worked with highly skilled professionals, including multi-platinum, Grammy Award winning audio engineers. I was awarded the Best Music Production Award by Temple University’s Klein College in May of 2017, as well as the Gregory Caiola Award in 2018 for my exceptional performance with Bell Tower Music (Temple University’s record label).
As far as what I can do for you, I'm offering mixing, mastering, production, and guitar services. My clients often tell me the first mix sounds done, even though I assure them I can push the song even further so that our sounds combine to create the best sounding piece of music you've ever had. I'm always on time or ahead of schedule, so if you need your music done in a timely manner I'm your guy.
