“From experiencing methods from the past and present I feel I can deliver both a sonically warm natural recording while meeting the needs of budgets and time constraints. Finding a fast pace engineer who can deliver a quality recording is in high demand these days. Being completely immersed in modern day technology via Pro-Tools/editing/tuning while knowing how to manage a large format console is what keeps me at a professional level. I’ve had some great teachers and understand the importance of maintaing quality in work and meeting the artist expectations”.
