A Slightly Longer "About Me":

Since I first touched the tonearm of a record player, I was fascinated with the concept of recorded music. After pursuing sound engineering for the past twelve years of my life in both my educational path and professional endeavors, I have established myself as a well-rounded professional audio engineer with a focus in mastering engineering. Though I primarily grew up with indie, alternative rock, and punk music, I always want to further expand my repertoire by taking on any kind of project. I attended Berklee College of Music and graduated in May 2014 with a degree in Music Production and Engineering and a minor in Acoustics and Electronics.

I have been playing music in assorted bands for well over half of my life and if there is one vital thing that I have learned as both a musician and an engineer, it is that you must not be afraid to tap into deep creativity while still retaining a sense of technical intuition. I strive to distance my work from run-of-the-mill engineering by thinking outside of the box and not always doing things "precisely by the book" in an effort to transcend the artist's vision for their project and expand it further beyond any sort of previously perceived limitations.

I created this website as a professional means to promote myself and my work. As mentioned on the homepage, most of my audio work is focused within the field of mastering engineering. As a recording and mix engineer, I have vast proficiency working on large-format analog and digital recording consoles, various digital audio workstations, analog tape machines and other formats outside of the DAW realm, plus many years of experience with live sound. In addition to audio engineering, I repair, service, and build audio electronics including (but not limited to) as effects pedals, tube and solid state amplifiers, rackmount gear, among other equipment. I believe having a vast knowledge of audio equipment and how it works, both inside and out, truly helps an audio engineer be the best they can be at their job.

My home studio is limited in terms of tracking (since it is primarily a space for mastering engineering), but if you are interested in working together on a record, there are various studios in the Boston area I work out of which I can assist you in booking for a session. I am also willing to travel to engineer your record if you have a specific studio you would like to work in outside of Massachusetts. Unfortunately, I do not currently offer attended sessions for mastering.

As of 2018, I am now working at Kurt Ballou's GodCity Studio in Salem, MA engineering and also repairing/maintaining studio equiptment. Outside of studio work, I occasionally tour with Epitaph Records recording artist The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die as their front-of-house live sound engineer among other related responsibilities.

If you would like a copy of my professional resume and / or a detailed list of recordings I have credits on, please do not hesitate to ask.
