I'm a recording engineer, mixer and guitar player. I have a home-based, treated studio suitable for overdubs and small ensemble recording. I have a degree in music production studied at Newcastle collage and have been honing my skills for nearly nine years. I am an accomplished guitar player and also have experience programming and composing music
I am willing to take on any recording, mixing or production project and can work in most genres. I have quality recording and mixing facilities available in my home-based studio. I love music so much that most of my house is given over to it! My treated room is suitable for a three piece ensemble recording, drum kit recording and overdubs as well as meeting the demands of any mixing project. As well as being well equipped, my studio provides a comfortable homely and enjoyable setting for the creation of music. Located on the edge of the city, there is a garden and tropical conservatory for you to take breaks, collect your self and get inspired to make great music.
I will work tirelessly to make every new project the best thing I've ever done.
I have played guitar for over twelve years and can readily play on any session. I've played in several bands and on most productions I have been involved with. I can also provide on-request guitar samples via the internet using any guitar set up you wish courtesy of state of the art amp modelling in the world renowned Axe FX unit.
