Recording, mixing and mastering engineer, and a musician first, adding a sensitive touch to the technical process.
I am a recording, mixing and mastering engineer based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where I'm head of Puerto Studio, the sound department of our sound design and musical production company, Puerto. For more than ten years I have been working with jazz bands, rock groups, folk singers, pop stars and electronic music projects.
Since music is not only in the charts, I have worked with many clients from other areas, including publicity agencies, design studios, filmmakers and broadcasting agencies, providing specific sound branding and musical identity to suit their needs.
Being a musician and a music producer at the same time gives a wider range of possibilities and resources to explore the dynamics of studio sessions and the clients, artists and staff involved in each process. Work is always developed with a unique and distinctive approach for every piece.
Let's work together.
