I am a Brooklyn-based engineer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and live sound engineer. I am currently employed at Germano Studios/The Hit Factory where I work alongisde some of New York's top engineers.
As a lifelong musician, I have vast experience working—and playing—with artists who come from varied musical backgrounds. Music theory proficiency and a highly trained ear, combined with a lifetime of mixing music in both live and studio environments, have produced recordings demonstrating a commitment to artistry and excellence.
My mixes stand out. I believe that the job of an exceptional mix engineer is to enhance the emotion and style contained in each recording. I do not use a template to mix; instead, I take inspiration from you, the mix notes, reference tracks, and the vibe of the recording. My goal is to create mixes that are both unique and commercially successful.
I have a BA from SUNY Oneonta in Music Industry with a concentration in audio production & engineering. My knowledge of the music industry, combined with my experience working at a commercial recording studio have given me exemplary communication skills, patience, and a strong work ethic.
Prior to my work at Germano Studios, I worked as the live sound engineer at the B-Side Lounge in Oneonta, NY and as an assistant engineer at ShowBriz Podcast Studios. Additional experience includes work as a audio technician with The Ride NYC.
My work allows for unlimited revisions. A mix is not complete until the client is 100% satisfied. I am happy to discuss how I can assist with your upcoming project.

Great working with Jacob! He has edited and mixed my last two projects and I couldn't be happier with the products. Responsive, professional and a pleasure to work with.
