MIXING + ENGINEERING + PRODUCTION + SCORING

 
 

About me

 

I love music.  

I grew up playing instruments.  I started with piano at age 7, and sprinkled in drums and guitar along the way somewhere. I played in bands with my brother and my friends. I've always felt "at home" writing and playing music.

I became interested in the recording process initially just because I wanted to be able to record my own songs! Eventually I fell in love with the art of making music.  In 2004, I graduated from Full Sail (a recording school in Florida) and moved to Nashville soon afterward.  In Nashville I worked for producer Brown Bannister, engineer Steve Bishir, and a whole bunch of artists.  

Since then, I've moved to the Pacific Northwest, where I live and work today. I love it here, and I love working with artists and bands to help them realize their vision and create new music.  I'd love to chat with you about mixing, engineering, producing, or scoring your project.
