What's your 'promise' to your clients?
My promise to my clients is to give them professional quality audio. I promise to work with my clients until they are completely satisfied with what I am doing with their work. I do not want to make your work my own, I want to help you bring your sounds to life.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
My career path is to one day make a full-time living out of audio production and sound design. I would really love to work in a career where I am mixing and mastering music, or creating a soundscape for video games and film. I just want to work on amazingly creative projects like music, film, or video games, and help bring them out to life in the real world.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I would really love to work with Kendrick Lamar one day because I feel that he is helping to change the world with his music. Kendrick is helping to bring the world together through music and that is something I would really love to get behind and help bring to life.
Can you share one music production tip?
I think a music production tip that has really helped me over these last few years is the idea of never being afraid to try something in your mix. The worst that can come from something like that is that it just does not fit with the rest of your mix. So all you do is undo it and try again; I always say that it is better to have you said you tried to make something work, rather than saying you didn't try at all.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I usually work on acoustic and rock music, but I really want to expand my horizons with genres. I would really love to get into mixing Hip Hop, Alt Rock, and so many more. There is just so much music out in the world and I want to be a part of it all.
What's your strongest skill?
I would have to say that my strongest skill with audio production is mixing. I love putting a mix together because I love being able to really get into the mix to find those little things that can help bring the song and mix alive. The little things can often times be those that set a great mixes apart from other mixes.
What do you bring to a song?
I bring professional quality mixing and mastering to a song, but I also will bring the song to life. I will work with you to make sure you get exactly what you want. To me, the mix is never done until you are completely satisfied with it.
What's your typical work process?
My typical work process is to start by listening through the work so that I can get an idea as to what it is all supposed to sound like. Then I would begin to start mixing the tracks so that it all begins to sound fantastic, then once that is all done I would master the track and send it out to the world!
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I am really just inspired by music. When it comes to music I want to be able to bring it alive to the listeners. Bands that inspire me most are Sylvan Esso, Brand New, Chance the Rapper, and Blink-182.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
The most common work I've done is sound design for film, but I really want to start getting involved with mixing and mastering music
