Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually start with an instrument like a guitar or piano. Being a multi instrumentalists gives me the advantage of being the most creative I can. However, when mixing and mastering for a client I approach the song very patiently. I listen to the full song how it is before I make any adjustments. I then gain stage and organize the session and get it going from there. I tend to work in increments of an hour to two hours to avoid ear fatigue, ensuring the client will be satisfied with the final result.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I mainly mix and master in Pro Tools using UAD high quality plug ins. My studio is acoustically sound treated for more accurate feedback in my mixes.

For percussion, I use Maschine.
