From managing recording studios to working with amateur and professional clients, I feel equally comfortable in any audio environment. I specialize in mixing and editing. I can take your track and makes sure it is polished and perfected and ready for the world.
25 plus years of audio experience.
I've mixed Pop, Rock, Country, and even a handful of orchestral projects.
I also work with podcasters and am experienced in mixing for TV and Film.
I love working with a young artist who is ready to take their projects to the next level.
I work efficiently, so I finish projects quickly.
I am proficient in Logic and Pro Tools, with Pro Tools being my tool of choice when I edit and mix.
I am also a keyboard player and songwriter. I understand music and am ready and able to help if there are additional instrumental or production elements needed.
