International Audio Engineer and Music Producer
I am a classically-trained musician and professional audio engineer with extensive experience in performance, music theory, notation and music history. With over 20 years experience in the field I have played for numerous events internationally and currently serve as the keyboardist for one of the top bands in the Bahamas. I also have extensive experience in recording, vocal tuning, mixing and mastering of audio collaborations and solo projects. I am a graduate of Full Sail University with a Bachelors in Recording Arts as well as The College of the Bahamas where I obtained my degree in Music, specializing in Piano. I have worked under top music producer Salaam Remi at his Instrument Zoo studio in Miami, Florida where I assisted on various projects. I am currently located in the Bahamas where I work on a variety of projects from commercial ads to voiceover projects to even live audio events. I am a self-motivated individual with dedication and a proven ability to work independently and collaboratively. I can't wait to work with you!
