Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I'm generally easy-going worker, where I take my time throughout my day to jump in and out of projects. When Im working on the project, I'm efficient, moving quickly and know exactly what I want to go for with a sound. On breaks, I will listen back even while doing some cleaning/housework so I can reference changes I need to make. I can also handle pressure, short deadlines and quick turn-arounds.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in essentially the worst possible space for mixing with a professional monitor/desk set up. Which is why I turn out a good mix. Why though? An incredible amount of ear-training throughout my life and I can't rent a studio quite yet. Working between so many studios and set ups, and also dedicating to ear-training in multiple kinds of spaces has given me so much experience with sound.
