Mixing Engineer and Production

DCross on SoundBetter

I am an award-winning engineer and producer that has mixed many radio singles and whole projects. My most recent award was a gold plaque and a hot 100 billboard award for Smile by Lil Duval and Snoop Dog. I mix multi-genre, and I can help you bring your vision to life.

I am a professional mixing engineer currently residing in Los Angles with over 15 years of experience in creating records. Now I mix for labels and indies as well as work with NCredible entertainment and the Hip Hop Caucus where I edit a weekly podcast.
