Hey there! I’m here to breathe life into your tracks and bring you huge, clean, metal mixes that compete with the best!

I'm a composer, multi-instrumentalist musician, mixing and mastering engineer and graduate of the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA that specializes in metal.

Currently, I write, produce, mix and master original music for film and tv as well as bands. I'm signed with multiple labels with worldwide distribution and have music in major motion pictures such as, "Extract" written and directed by Mike Judge. My experience with labels have made me confident that I can bring your tracks to life, make them radio ready and contemporary to compete with the best while keeping them sounding huge and brutal!

No paid revisions! We’ll get your tracks sounding exactly how you envision them to.
