Analog or digital and why?
I prefer Analog over digital. While I understand that both have their advantages over one another, and that they both can have their place in a project. I like Analog because it is what I grew up using.

What do you like most about your job?
I would say the best part of the job is being able to hear new music that hasn't been released yet.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
I ask what kind of sound they are going for, often I ask for reference audio to compare what is being worked on with what the client expectations are.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
I would say that anyone can produce audio, but mixing and mastering and even recording can be a lot like playing an instrument. If you want high quality recordings, mixes, and masters, then it is best to leave those jobs to people who have developed their production "chops".
Can you share one music production tip?

I like to focus on blues, jazz, and rock. I am open to many genera but I feel like these are the most familiar to me.
