As the first-ever staff engineer at The Enterprise in Burbank, CA (now the location of Harvey Mason Media), and thereafter as an independent engineer, I've had the good fortune to work with many high-profile recording artists and record companies, as well as the biggest commercial advertisers on TV & Radio (partial list below). As an independent/freelance engineer, I have worked at over 100 studios in & around Los Angeles. Along the way, I've earned a couple platinum records, a Golden Reel award, and made a lot of friends!

My degree in Music Production & Engineering (and minor in Arranging)  from Berklee College of Music, combined with my work there as Supervisor of Electronic Maintenance in Berklee's studios, prepared me to apply my knowledge of electronics, acoustics, microphones, consoles, tape machines, and most importantly music, to the role of Recording / Mixing engineer. When I started working at Enterprise, they had one Control Room with an Amek console and tiny vocal booth. When I left to become an independent, they had fiverooms with four SSL consoles and one Neve console.
 

Today, I conduct the majority of my work in my home studio using the latest versions of ProTools, Logic, Adobe Audition, and plugins from Waves, Izotope, SoundToys, Sonnox, ReLab, Plugin Alliance, Exponential, Reverb Factory, Air, and more. Microphones include Neumann, Sennheiser, Shure, Presonus, and Samson.
