  1. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  2. A: I would definitely recommend my mentor Brendan Duffey.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: I don't think there is a correct answer. If it sounds good, it sounds good. I would love to have analog gear but I'm perfectly fine with in the box.

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: I promise that I will help you achieve your sonic vision and translate what is in your head into the production.

  9. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  12. A: I like to focus on the emotion and attitude of a song.

  13. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  14. A: Always have a plan. Don't just reach for a plugin. Set yourself up with what you want to achieve technically and artistically.

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: I would say my strongest skill is my ability to critically listen to a piece of music.

  17. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
