As a PRODUCER, I specialize in electronic and pop music with experience producing indie, rock, and orchestral. My strengths in production include: arrangement, synths, guitars, bass, programmed drums, sound design, vocal production, mixing, and mastering. Everything you need from start to finish!
As a COMPOSER, I studied under Berklee College of Music professor, Marc Jovani. I have since had clients returning to work with me time and time again on everything from Feature Films and YouTube shorts, to Commercials and Live Escape Rooms.
As a GUITARIST, I attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA where I studied Guitar Theory. Shortly after I was hired as a session player and toured the US multiple times, later sharing the stage with solo artist and widely known social media influencer, Indiana Massara.

Needed a quick EDM guitar track and Chris delivered above and beyond what I was expecting and be turned it around in less than 24 hours. What a star!!!
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": xhttps://youtu.be/N8mnW_Jx9_E
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.
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!
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.
