If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Coffee maker, acoustic bass and guitar, small drum kit, multi-track recorder.
How would you describe your style?
I've been called "meticulous." I'm cool with that.
What are you working on at the moment?
I'm working on a solo album where I write, perform and record everything myself. I'm also playing drums in a local noise rock band and actively looking for new folks to collaborate with.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Lewis at OwlCove Productions taught me a lot about mixing and the business in general. Great guy.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Typically in the realm of the heavy and weird. But there's a great intersection there with the beautiful. I like dynamics.
What's your strongest skill?
I have a strong ear for detail and the tenacity to ensure the entire sonic picture is within the bounds of intention.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I have a mobile 16-track DAW studio built around a Focusrite interface with Audix, Audio-Technica and Royer mics. I generally record direct in to Reaper. My home mix/edit studio utilizes UAD and Massey plugins, Dangerous Audio DAC/summing and Adam A7 monitors.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I like artists who learn to take control of their own sound and extend their sonic vision into the Production sphere. Leon Macey, Jamie Saint Merat and Misha Mansoor are good examples.
