He has a very musical approach to mixing. Really good engineer. Thank you so much.

His ability of empathy combines perfectly with a solid compassion for art and builds a bridge between friendship, arguments and creating the perfect way for a sound. Patient, deeply informed with different genres, market, artists of different range from various circles, a good professional and shows obvious potential to become top class in the game.
