Get out of the box and create songs that are original, interesting and most importantly- yours.
I am a lifelong musician, 20 year guitarist and 10 year producer and engineer. I absolutely love that I get to work on music every day!
My goal is to help each artist achieve their vision for their music. I have no interest in changing you or making you something you are not.
I thrive on taking unrealized songs and bringing them to life. My experience has been doing just this with various singer-songwriters who have never played their songs with a band. I will take you from start to finish making sure your project is exactly what you want the whole way.
Mixing is my happy place, I love digging into a song, finding what makes it special and bringing out its unique sound and vibe while adding a creative flare along the way. Going between mixing and production really keeps me fresh and excited for each step.
