Mixing and Mastering Engineer with over 15 years experience. Studied Recording Technology in Canada. I have worked with Universal Records France in the capacity of producer and mix engineer on a single for one of their artistes. I have a wide appreciation for music and can bring your songs to life through technical ability and creative vision.
I will bring you song/project to life. I believe that my ability to listen is my greatest asset. Not only will I listen to your song with technical and creative ears, but I will listen to your vision for the song/project and help to paint the picture as you see it.

I offer mixing and mastering services for electronic music and live recordings in any genre.
I will give you a free test mix/master ( 30 sec of your song) and unlimited revisions until you are satisfied (once you have agreed to the mix/master there will be additional cost for revisions).
