PRODUCER & PLATINUM MIXER
LOS ANGELES, CA
Music represents an artist's utmost vulnerability, and at times it is tough to hear how your work can be improved upon. It is important to know that a producer will honor your artistic integrity while offering ideas to help better each song. I've always aimed to provide an informed outside perspective when handling any production I've worked on. I aim to respectfully comment on each composition, offering ideas to improve each song and make it the best it can possibly be. Any idea or change I suggest will always be a discussion, and together we will all come to an agreement on the best ways to refine each song.
While I initially trained on large format SSL and API consoles; laying out mixes in a more traditional old school way, I mostly work in the box these days. The goal is to create mixes that I feel best represent each artist's music with character, clarity, and depth. It is important to me to accomplish a well rounded sound with large low end and modern presence.
I began recording bands at the age of 14, giving me a total of 15 years of experience as an engineer. Additionally, I trained in production at New York University where I worked on a variety of DAWs and analog recording consoles. These years allowed me to experiment with crafting tones using tape machines and analog equipment as well as a variety of software plugins and instruments. I've had the honor of runnings sessions in studios such as Dave Grohl's Studio 606, The Village, Shelter Island, and 4th Street Recording. I currently produce out of my private studio in Los Angeles, CA.
I studied mastering with engineer Alan Silverman in an extensive 5 month course in 2015. I used this time to grow as a mastering engineer, learning many aspects of the art; finding my own techniques along the way. I now aim to address every detail and create finished products easily accessible in any listening setting. It's important for me to create a final product that can translate appropriately: having competitive loudness with tonal balance.
