Rich mixes full of character and beauty. I'll mix and master your songs with care and respect for your vision while I add professionalism and depth to their sonic makeup. Quick communication takes priority. I love working with gritty textures and songs with character.
I'm a remote mixing and mastering engineer located in Seattle, Washington. I specialize in broadly alternative music, including indie, punk, metal, folk, and experimental genres. If you're a DIY musician with a beautifully imperfect home recording in need of a facelift, I'm your person. I'll mix and master your music to a professional standard while keeping its true spirit intact.
I work in the box, using Logic Pro X and a variety of industry standard plugins by Waves, Izotope, and others.

Even with all the inconsistencies and mistakes that were made during the recording process of my band's first EP, Sam was able to glue it all together in a way that made sense while emphasizing the unique characteristics that define our sound. Also very receptive to feedback and overall a great communicator throughout the mixing/mastering process! Very impressed :)
Came to Sam with a song I needed mixed and mastered at the very last minute. He not only came through time-wise, but did a great job on the mix! He was able to take the descriptions of what I was looking for and get the perfect result! I would definitely work with him again in the future.
I had a batch of demos that I personally recorded somewhat slapdash and had no intention of showing to anyone due to their *rough* nature. Sam came through and changed ALL that by bringing the recording way up in standards. He was easy to work with and listened intently to what I wanted. I was super happy with the final product and would definitely work with Sam again in the future.
Did good work on some songs I recorded and needed mixing. Worked fast and able to make changes as I requested. I would definitely ask Sam to do mixing again.
