There's never been a Mix I haven't put my whole heart and soul into! I specialize in pop and electronic music with plenty of other experience mixing indie rock, EDM, and orchestral. So be sure to reach out with your vision so we can get started bringing it to life!

Greetings, Musicians! I have been Mixing & Mastering music of all types (ie: Pop, EDM, Rock, Singer/Songwriter, Indie, Electronic, Orchestral) for the last 10 years. After graduating from Musician's Institute in Hollywood, CA with an Audio Engineering degree, I recognized there were a lot of songwriters/producers/composers who loved the creative aspect of writing/recording, but dreaded the Mixing & Mastering. And that, my friends, is where I come in! I am an absolute nerd for all things audio and get great pleasure from taking something that sounds good and making it sound great! So if you'd rather spend more time creating and less time mixing/mastering, I am more than happy to help!

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Last year when I was looking to get my songs mixed, I was having trouble finding the right mixer. I had already tried working with a few other mixers and wasn't happy with the sound. Then I found Chris! He was so professional, created high quality clean mixes for me, was open to making revisions if needed, and delivered the songs back quickly and on time. He's talented, affordable and reliable (which is a rare combination) so reach out to Chris for your next mix or production before he gets too busy! Also here's a sample of his mixing work on my song "Rise Up": x

    I booked Chris as a guitarist for a few of my live shows and he was absolutely amazing! One of the shows was challenging and required travelling across the country to another state! Chris was flexible and I found him incredible to work with. He changed songs at the last minute without complaint and stepped up on several occasions to help me with some production areas of the show. He is superbly talented and importantly such a gentle and positive person to work with. He will always be the first person I call again for my live shows.

    I had written a song that I loved with another songwriter/musician, and he did a great job producing it. However, we realized that we wanted to "take it to the next level" in terms of production, mixing, and mastering, and Chris was our first pick! We approached him to help with our song, and he did an absolutely fantastic job. Chris was timely, open to adjustments and feedback, and above all supremely talented in the ways he brought out the best in our song. I can't wait to work with him again! I definitely recommend.

    I had a tough technical difficulty with one of my songs when I was was mixing and mastering the final edit. I worked for days trying to solve it and it had become very frustrating. I even asked a handful of sound engineers and nobody was able to figure out exactly how I wanted it done. Well...Chris recognized the issue and took care of it right away. Will definitely be using this guy again.

    I hired Chris to do some electronic remixes of my songs. He did a great job creating a professional sound that gave a lot of energy to the tunes. As well, he mastered one of the songs because the other guy I hired did a poor job. Chris figured out the problem and did an excellent job creating a master that sounded clear and powerful, while keeping it in the proper "loudness" guidelines for Spotify and iTunes. I highly recommend Chris.

  7. Review by Kayden R.

    I hired Chris to do all of the soundtracks and soundscapes for my escape room attractions. He absolutely blew my expectations away every time he sent me a track. Will continue working with him on future audio projects.

    Chris produces high quality work quickly and with great, seamless communication. He understands what is needed, and delivers above and beyond expectations. I hired Chris to mix and master a track and was extremely pleased with the results. I would definitely work with him again.

    We've used Chris for sync song mixing and we were especially pleased with the quality of the finished product and the fast turn-around. Chris is a great communicator and easy to work with as well.

    I hired Chris to score my first feature, SHOW YOURSELF. The task I gave Chris was not an easy one: I needed him to faithfully recreate tracks that sounded nearly identical to existing tracks, but different enough that they were fair use. I also asked Chris to do this under extremely tight deadlines. I had no idea if, realistically, it could be done, but Chris assured me he was up for the challenge. When he sent over samples of the work he was doing, I was floored. The tracks were damn near perfect, and above and beyond anything I had imagined. HIRE THIS MAN. He saved our lives!

  11. Review by Braeden B.

    I hired Chris to master my first release and I can’t say enough about how pleased I was with the finished product. The track sounds great on all sound systems. He has years of experience and truly knows the ins and outs on getting productions to sound crisp. Another aspect I really appreciate about working with him is his efficiency. On top of all of that, I think his rates are very reasonable, especially for his skill level. Give him a shot; you won’t be disappointed.

    Working with Chris was a fantastic process from start to finish, he brought my ideas to life exactly as I wanted. He always over delivers on all the projects we’ve worked on together and I’m always thrilled with the final product. Whatever your vision is you can trust him to bring it to life. I use Chris now regularly on projects from things as simple as acoustic demos right through to designing and building my vocal sample pack for Splice. I trust my artistry in his hands. Thanks Chris for making it such an enjoyable process.
