I would have loved to work with John Lennon. I grew up listening to his music and he inspired me to learn how to play the guitar.
Can you share one music production tip?
Always make the musicians feel comfortable and help them to focus their efforts only in the music. Isolate and avoid external distractions.

What do you bring to a song?
My trained ears and musical taste. I will deliver your song sounding great!
What's your typical work process?
I usually discuss with the client their vision for the track. After that I will get to work. When I have the mix almost ready I send a bounce to the client for feedback. After working on the feedback I will deliver the final mix.

SSL E series with some analog and digital outboard equipment. Dynaudio Acoustics near-field monitors.

So many talented engineers and musicians have inspired me and continue to inspire me every day. It will be impossible list them all because I will leave someone out of the list.
