What I do

I produce, record, edit, and mix music.  Much like a performer my craft requires a lifetime of never-ending practice and improvement, as well as the need for the technique to become second nature so that I can focus on the music.  My goal is always to be able to step back and be absorbed by recordings on an emotional level - to not be conscious of the speakers, the processing, the mixing, the microphones.
