What type of music do you usually work on?
I usually work on rock, metal, pop and acoustic/folk music.
What's your strongest skill?
My strongest skill is mixing
What do you bring to a song?
As a musician myself (drums, bass, guitar, keys) I have an understanding of the role each instrument should play in the mix and a passion for each of them.
What's your typical work process?
I would first listen to the unmixed song to get a feel for the song and to determine what sound direction would suit the song best. Then I would start working with the drums as a good or fitting drum sound can immediately tighten the mix up and give more clarity on what the rest of the instruments are doing. After that I would mix the rest of the instruments and leave the vocals for last as it is the main instrument and needs to cut through most.

I mix "in the box".
