My story

 

I’ve been involved in music and audio for what seems like forever. It started when I was 4 and heard the Beatles album Help. The sound coming out of the stereo made me go crazy; I ran around the living room pushing my little red fire truck as fast as I could go.

As a result, music ended up being a huge part of my life when I was growing up. I ended up played in far too many bands - likely because I had a good ear and  learned quickly. That led to endless practicing, performing, touring and eventually recording in a number of professional studios. This direct experience cultivated my love of sound.

I believe this formative time has given me a great foundation on which to practice the art of mixing - and I truly believe it is an art! I’ve spent countless hours over the past few years mixing, listening, editing and refining.

Please see my sample page for examples - except where noted, these tracks were mostly recorded on inexpensive gear in home studios and small practice spaces. It's amazing what you can do without spending a lot of money! That being said, the room you record in, mic choice and placement greatly affect the end result. Better sounding rooms (generally larger treated rooms) and proper sound selection during recording = superior sound and makes the music easier to mix!
