Flares on SoundBetter

I am a music producer and musician with a focus in mixing and sound design. I come from a very heavy influence of rock and electronic music and feel I have a unique aesthetic in everything I do.

- I have worked in the past with Ben Boysen and am currently working with Taylor Larson (From First To Last, Veil of Maya) on a full length album for Flares.

- I am multi-contracted, exclusively and non exclusively for many top music licensing firms such as Audiosocket, HDMusicNow.

- Recent placements have included Monster Energy commercial, Lotus Evora 400 video, Citibank Commercial, UCLA Leukemia Benefit
