I am a Mixing, Mastering and Tracking Engineer who believes that music is about emotion and transmitting that feeling to the listener. I have the talent, skill and experience to bring out those emotional qualities in an artist's record.
I can produce your record from pre-production to mastering, or add production to basic tracks and mix, or just mix your song.
I can't wait to hear your track and start to envision where I can help take it!
I began my career working in Atlanta at Soul Asylum Studios. I got the opportunity to work with up and coming artists in different genres including R&B, Hip-Hop, Pop and Rap. As I gained experience working with artists in these genres, I came to realize it was the feel of the music, rather than the purity of its sound, that was most important to the artist and most listeners. I made it my mission to uncover the heart of every song I worked on and to help artists discover ways of sharing their vision while maintaining accessibility.
I still get excited when I hear a great song - and get even more excited when I hear something that I think I can help make better and bring to its full potential.
