As the needs of my clients have changed so has the manner in which I work, comfortable both in a large format recording studio or working in Pro Tools with a control surface I still work to provide the best possible results. Having built a strong skill set I am comfortable providing my services as engineer, producer, mixer, or mastering engineer. With a large range of relationships built over the years I can help clients find the right space for their projects at every turn as well as putting a client in touch with many great studio musicians if needed. From start to finish I can help you obtain a great result.
