He has worked on multiple projects that have been nominated for or won Grammy and Latin Grammy awards.

    Working with Nick on mixing my EP has been a great experience. He is an incredibly professional, accommodating and efficient mix engineer. Delivering brilliant results in a quick turnaround. Communication was clear and revisions were easy to make. He has also been a great source of advice throughout this project. I highly recommend him.

    I had an excellent experience working with Nick. I was beyond excited to work with him after seeing his incredible resume full of albums that I absolutely love. He mastered my most recent full length album and really added the dynamics, punch, and polish that the mixes were missing. I wholeheartedly recommend him to any artist without a moments hesitation, and am already cueing up the next project to work with him on.

    Had an awesome experience working with Nick, who recently mastered a 6 song EP for me. He was extremely timely and easily to communicate with. Songs sounded great and he made any changes my producer and I mentioned by the next day. Really great experience; will surely be working with him again on my next project.

    Nick is great engineer to work with, he's responsive and focused on detail.
    His mixes are modern sounding with a classic analog feel to it.
    I highly recommend him!
