Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I just finished an EP for an artist called TAVIA. I produced it and I think it came out great. I think its going to have a great release!
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
If I'm mixing, I always ask if clients like the way their project sounds before they send it to me.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Reach out! Finding someone you click with and trust is more important than how much they cost and the only way to get to know someone is by making that contact.
What do you bring to a song?
A fresh set of ears, and I think I do a good job of making small with the big picture of the song in mind.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I mix a lot of live recorded music. Stuff where everyone was in the same room without much isolation. I also regularly mix for composers who primarily use software instruments. In addition, I play guitar for several artists.
What's your typical work process?
I spend a lot of time trying to get into my client's heads. I want to get on board with the vision for their song, and taylor the rest of my process to the client's and the music's needs.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I've got a UA Apollo, a few great mics, a few great instruments, a few pieces of good outboard gear, a really big live room, a tiny mix room. Hopefully, I get a great sound with my ears.
