One-stop shop! Berklee alum with 15 years experience as a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, bass, drums and keys, and Audio Engineer/Producer
Born and raised in Boston, I moved to Los Angeles shortly after studying at Berklee College of Music to pursue my passion. I immediately found work as an audio engineer for a film/media company, as well as a range of session work and performance opportunities. My clients have sought me for my ability to fill multiple roles, as a guitarist, bassist, drummer and keyboard player, as well as recording, mixing and production in a variety of genres.
I have relative-perfect pitch, which enables me to hear the relationships between melodies and chords, something which my clients have described as having a "golden ear". Basically, this allows me to do everything from learning songs quickly without lead sheets, to harmonizing with a melody on the spot, something that has come in handy when I have been employed as a backing vocalist.
As a composer, I am a member of BMI, and my mixes and compositions have been featured on shows such as American Idol, MTV True Life, Access Hollywood, Around The NFL, and many, many others.
Currently, I am employed as personal recording and mixing engineer for Multi-platinum songwriter, Melanie Andrews (Janet Jackson, Earth Wind and Fire) and have been working at her private studio and music-development facility in Orange County for the past 6 years.
I am always on the lookout for the next great project!
