I'm a Toronto based audio engineer with credits on projects by The Lonely Parade, M/V Lark, Silver Pools, Sarah Jane Scouten, Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy, City and Colour, Arkells, Matthew Stevens and more.

I offer high-end, analog-based work environments for recording and mixing at competitive rates. My personal setup incorporates equipment and DSP that closely models equipment found in world-class recording facilities. I aim for continuity in the quality of sound I'm creating at all stages.

While employed as a full-time staff engineer at Revolution Recording Studios, I strengthened my recording, mixing and technical skills. I graduated from the Electroacoustic Studies program at Concordia University in Montreal, with Great Distinction at the top of my class and faculty. I have been a member of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) since 2012.

I specialize in sound recording & mixing, digital audio editing, and studio tech.

    I loved working with James and look forward to the next time we do. He came to my recording studio to help correct sound balancing issues, set up the 5.1 system and trouble shoot tech problems. I found him a pleasure to be around, knowledgeable and resourceful. Great guy!
