I've been producing and mixing music for over 20 years. I studied music production at Berklee College of Music, and I've worked with the likes of Bon Iver, FJAAK, Jack White, Apollo Sunshine, Langhorne Slim, White Denim, Dr. Dog, Darkside and many more. I care a great deal about my work and I will make sure you are happy with the results.
I can help you with many stages of the process from songwriting to production, beat making, instrumental tracking, mixing and mastering. I know how hard it is to work on your own music without help. I can give you constructive feedback and together we can get the job done.
