I grew up in a musical family surrounded by it. Early on my passion was evident, and my future in music would be my only path.
As the former Chief Engineer at Blackbeard Recording Studios(Houston, TX)of 6 years; I have over 16 years of experience working in audio and music. Since going freelance in early 2018, I have been able to be more selective and follow the projects I am absolutely passionate about. I push the boundaries of genre specific recording and production. I've worked in just about any genre you are likely to hear these days. I have the ability to capture the vibe and feel of the artist. Accentuating and embellishing the artist's original idea, I aim to create a dreamscape, eliminating the distance between the artist's mind and the listener.
