  21. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  22. A: Mixing and mastering are the final steps in the process of making your music sound amazing. It can be the difference between proudly showing off your music or being so embarrassed you never release it. It can be the difference between getting signed or being stuck in "local band hell" forever. It can be the difference between getting millions of streams or getting ignored.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I have been working in Audio Music Production and establishing trust with my clients for the last ten years in many different genres of music, providing professional Recording and Mixing services locally, and remotely for artists from around the country and the world.

  25. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  26. A: For killer guitar tones especially in metal and hard rock, it always begins with the player, and not just the amplifier and cabinet you're using. Picking and palming technique, the right type of pick, and strings, a high quality guitar with high quality pickups (I always suggest EMG's, but that's just me) will give you that awesome attack, and bite.

  27. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  28. A: I have worked with so many genres, but if I had to narrow it down it would be Metal, Rock and Hip Hop.

  29. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  30. A: Staying organized, and I am obsessed with doing great drum and guitar editing.

  31. Q: What's your typical work process?

  32. A: Very organized. I do work with templates at first, but not always since every project is different.

  33. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  34. A: Simple set up, but gets the job done with every project I have worked on. I work mostly in the box. I have great mics, and room for getting the great sounds that I need.

  35. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  36. A: Eddie Van Halen, James Hetfield, Don Henley, Bob Rock, Billy Decker, John Mutt Lange

  37. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  38. A: Recording, and mixing production. I have also produced, co written, and played bass and guitar for my clients.
