What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Chris Lord-Alge, Manny Marroquin, Tony Maserati, Skrillex, Diplo, Graham Cochrane, among others!
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
The most common thing I do is production and mixing work. I'm usually called to produce someone's record which would include recording instruments or producing MIDI sounds.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I have been involved in audio since 2009 but never took it seriously until a year later. I have since then freelanced my services to a lot of bands and singer/songwriters for demos and EPs.
How would you describe your style?
My style of mixing is all about finding the energy of the song and making that the main ingredient in a song, and I always use an ambient and airy approach to the music I work on.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Lately I've been working on R&B and experimenting with Trap and ambient sounding music, but I am very well versed in indie, folk, rock and metal (which happen to be my favorite genres to listen to anyway).
What do you bring to a song?
Whenever there is a song in front of me, not only do I bring 5 years of technical experience to the table, but I also have over 20 years of musical expertise. I am a guitarist at heart, but I have plenty of experience dealing with vocalists, especially with harmonies.
Tell us about your studio setup.
My current set up is an iMac computer running 20GB of RAM. Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 and a Focusrite Octopre for eight extra inputs. I monitor using a pair of Tannoy Reveal 501a monitors and a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro headphones. All of my work is done mostly through Pro Tools and sometimes Logic Pro.
