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 ten years of my life in both my educational path and professional endeavors, I have established myself as a well-rounded professional audio engineer with 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 created this website as a professional means to promote myself and my work. As mentioned on the homepage, most of my audio work is within the field of mastering. 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 years of experience with live sound. The home studio I work out of is very limited in terms of tracking (since I primarily use it for mastering), 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 where you want to work outside of Massachusetts.

I have been playing music in assorted bands for over half of my life and if there is one grand thing thatI 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 limitation.

I have a personal goal for every record I engineer or work on in general to sound completely unique in comparison to other work I've done. I prefer to keep a project sounding natural as a representation of the band or what they sound like rather than copy a sonic quality in regards to other records within the respective genre of the artist. That being said, I am also completely happy to assist the musician in achieving a sound similar to their favorite band if that is something they are looking to pursue.

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.
