My story begins in Eilat, Israel, growing up drumming and studying music. Once I discovered the depth of music's production process - I dived into a world of engineering, production and sound. Over the last 17 years I was lucky to Record / Mix / Master and collaborate with some great artists. You can find some of them here below.

Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: "a great mix can save a bad production". Well, that is half true, i can make you sound bigger, but if we both do are jobs right we can really take it to the next level.

A: Electronic, Pop.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Mixing and Mastering ITB. the way i see it , you can get the best results with ITB mixing. it's more functional and fast. you can a clean sound or a dirty sound if needed. i also think that there is a way to get the dirt and grit which is super close to that analog sound with the right use of plugin emulations.

A: Beck, David Bowie, Radiohead - on the musicians side. Tchad Blake, Jaycen Joshua, Andrew Scheps - on the engineers side.

A: Beck / Bowie / Thom Yorke - because of their innovation and original way of doing stuff.
