Hi! Thank you for viewing my profile.

My attention to detail is what has gotten me into mixing and mastering. So with me I will give the fullest attention to your song and give my all to achieve a final mix to be sent to wherever its going to go. Most of all I will always accept feedback and apply any notes before moving on to the next step. Please message me for any questions or connections for I am doing what I can to establish myself

Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: December I was asked to be apart of a Christmas album. I was the mixing/mastering engineer, the turnaround for this project was pretty fast. It was 7 songs and it was going to drop in about 3 weeks, I’m so proud of that project because I worked pretty much night and day on it, I listen to it now and I remember each moment of each song that was a grind and it just makes me proud because it was a challenge to get it all mixed and mastered in 3 weeks. To know I gave it my all and my client was ecstatic with the final product makes me super proud
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Always working on my craft, it could be a mix from last year or just multitracks I found on a website for practice mixing. I just want to be as good as I can be
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: At this moment, I don’t know too many people. The more people on SoundBetter I know, I’ll be promoting them more than me
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: This is tough, digital makes it much easier and quicker to do. The sound from analog is unbeatable. So I would have to say analog, because I making started in the digital era so getting more of an idea of why there is such a debate over analog would be my choice

A: I’m going to hear you and your vision, the turnaround will not be long. Revisions do not upset me, I want to get your album of song perfect
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Mac Pro, Interface, headphones, midi keyboard and a Mic. That would be all I would need
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: 2016 I had this vision of being a Audio Engineer. So 2017 I started attending Berklee College of Music where I found my passion and callling. When I mixed my first song. Others would ask me to mix their projects. So the more I did that the more practice and time I got to do mixing/mastering
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Something I have been told a few times is. Balanced, the biggest compliment I’ve received is that all the elements are perfectly placed in the mix
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: There is so many. If I had to choose it would be John Legend. His creativity in the studio, I would love to be in that room seeing his creativity in real time. Also I’m a big fan of his voice so being the recording/mixing/mastering would be a dream
