Mixing Engineer/Producer/Musician with a focus on the meeting between analog and digital. I love taking a song and helping it find it's truth, and giving every project its own sonic signature. True hybrid analog/digital/tape mixing setup. Multiple Spotify New Music Friday credits. Founding member of Valley Queen.
My name is Neil, and I am a Mixing Engineer, producer, and musician based in Los Angeles with over 7 years of experience. I love taking each project and trying to find how to fully bring it to life. I've gotten to work on a variety of projects, and last year a song I mixed and produced (Cosmo Gold "Drown the Fly) got onto Spotify's New Music Friday playlist without any label involvement.
I believe in finding the sweet spot where the worlds of digital and analog meet. I have a full analog/digital hybrid mixing system that can give your tracks life, power and energy, including high quality analog gear, industry standard conversion, reamping and analog tape capabilities.
Whether you tracked your song on a laptop in your bedroom or in a beautiful recording studio, I can give your tracks the life they need. I am also to produce and track your song from the ground up, whatever the size of the project.
I am a founding member and the bass player of LA-based Valley Queen, which gives me a unique musician's perspective on recording.
After getting my BA in Studio Recording from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, I worked under producers Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast) Matt Linesch (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes), and Eric Palmquist (Bad Suns) to learn a variety of recording and production techniques, both old and new.

I have worked with Neil for a couple projects of mine and I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else. As an artist it is so important for me to have someone who understands the route I want to go with something, and then make it even better then I could ever imagine. It’s very special when your projects are brought to life in that way. If you have the chance to work with Neil, take it!
Neil has produced and engineered a number of different projects for me and I truly could not recommend him more. I've worked with lots of different producers and Neil is by far my favorite. As an engineer he really knows his technical stuff and has really great gear, most importantly as a producer, he knows when to step in and when to step back and will go the extra mile to create the best final product possible. He has also lended a hand as an instrumentalist and songwriter, dudes got hooks!
Neil is equally comfortable in "producer" and "engineer" roles, possessing both in-depth, technical, studio knowledge and the kind of artistic awareness of needed to turn a song or performance into a cohesive final track. He's a great choice for any genre, especially if you're looking for one person to take you from studio set-up to final mix.
Neil is the man! Great person, super patient, and great at making artists feel comfortable in the studio. On top of that, he’s really good at what he does. Great at capturing sound: mic’d amps, vocals, piano, etc. And great within Pro Tools. You can say, I want it to sound like this, and Neil will make it sound like that. I would suggest tracking with him if you are serious about taking your sound to the next level.
Neil is an excellent producer who perfectly balances the line of pushing an artist to do more, while also being respectful of their own artistic vision. He doesn't ever make one feel less than if they go into a project with a limited knowledge on the whole recording experience. He's extremely empathetic and is all around just a great person to work with. There's a reason my band and I have not worked with a different producer since working with Neil. I highly recommend working with him.
Neil is a brilliant and attentive producer who has worked with me on two releases. He combines top notch engineering know-how with a creative and flexible approach to the artistic side of production and mixing. I highly recommend working with Neil!
