A Bit About Me

I'm an audio engineer by trade having had a love for music and production since high school. Early in my career I fell into mixing audio for broadcast and film. This kicked off a 13 year, award-winning career as an international documentary producer with distributions on Netflix, Amazon, Theatrical, DVD, Blu-Ray and digital formats.


After retiring from doc production in 2018 and spending time in the studio on personal and friends' projects, I re-entered the commercial marketplace in 2021 focusing on my first love: mixing music. Since then, I've had the pleasure of making artists sound amazing as a touring and club front-of-house engineer as well as being a small part of lasting creations in the studio. In 2024, I made the transition to mixing in Dolby Atmos with a full rebuild of my mix room, The Fallout Shelter.

In my off-time, you'll probably find me at home with my wife and four kids tending to our property, 17 chickens and mini fruit tree orchard. We ski as much as possible and practice Judo so now I volunteer on ski patrol and hold a USA Judo Coaches certification. If you find any of this appealing, I'd love to talk about your project or tour (or ski trip)! So please hit me up via phone or email. Cheers!
