I aim for lasting masters that harbor impact, clarity, and dynamism further connecting the music to its listeners.  I achieve this by active listening, having a deep musical understanding and appreciation of all genres, and utilizing the proper technical application of signal processing to achieve the most musical sounding results.

As a mastering engineer I am drawn to low and mid range warmth, emotion, energy, rich timbre and saturation, clarity of stereo imaging, non-fatiguing yet present high end, and rhythmic feels with punch, snap, and groove.  I don’t believe in cookie cutter template based mastering, as every project deserves its own process and as an active participent I seek to develop a personal connection to everything I work on.

I am akin to helping artists tell their stories, aligning myself with their vision, and making their music just sound awesome.

Mastering is the term most commonly used to refer to the process of taking a music mix and preparing it for distribution. There are several things to consider in this process: unifying the sound of a record, maintaining consist levels across an album, and preparing for distribution. Ultimately, mastering is the process of making your audio content sound as best as it can on multiple platforms before it goes out into the real world in combination with prepping that content for distribution.

Proper mastering involves active and engaged listening, an acoustically treated room, some good gear (analog and digital!), great full range monitors, and a great engineer who is communicative with clients about their needs and accustomed to the process and space where they work. Below is a link to the equipment I use for mastering.

2.Audio finishing for multi-media content such as short films, movie trailers, advertisements, and even 360 or virtual reality videos.  Past clients have included Amazon, Volvo, NFL, Sing Sing Studio, SXSW Festival, and a whole list of independent artists and content creators.
