What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I promise to delivery quality work, to the best of my ability, every single time.
What do you like most about your job?
I love working with music, mainly because it doesn't feel like work at all to me. I can spend 12 hours a day creating, recording or mixing, and be excited to get up the next day and do the same thing!
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What is sonic quality that YOU want out of the song you want me to mix. Give me examples of songs where you like the mix.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I have been working with bands either creating, recording, or mixing for about 7 years. I received my Audio certification a year ago from Media Tech, and since have worked with a few local studios. I am moving to Austin TX in a few months to pursue job leads at few big studios down there.
What type of music do you usually work on?
The genres I work with most is probably Rock, Hip Hop, and Singer Song Writer.
What's your typical work process?
Usually when I first get a session I upload all the tracks and begin sorting, naming, and color coding the tracks to my liking. If editing is necessary for the song I then begin that process, doing whatever is needed for the specific track. I then start mixing either with the beat of the track, or drums if I'm working with a band. I then move on to the bass, and guitars. Then finish with mixing the vocals. If I am mastering song, I then tend to walk away from it for 30 mins-1 hour to give my ears a rest, to prevent fatigue.
