Analog or digital and why?
I like a combination of both, the recall on digital is so quick but the way analog smoothes out the top end so it is clear but not harsh is almost impossible in the digital realm however UAD is doing a great job of creating emulations that are getting close
What do you like most about your job?
Seeing the artist hear their song finally how they had envisioned it is the best reward for me
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I am been in the entertainment industry for over 15 years and in 2014 received my first Grammy nomination for engineering work on William McDowell "Withholding Nothing (Live)"
What's your strongest skill?
My quick turnaround because of my ability to mix quickly and decisively.
What do you bring to a song?
My goal is to understand the artists vision for the song and through the mixing process make it come alive and move the listener.
What's your typical work process?
Typically I will receive an mp3 from the artist inquiring about mixing services to review, so i can guide them through the steps needed to take the song where they want it to go.
