Recording Engineering

Stray Media

Starting like many recording engineers, I was 15 years old the first time I multi-tracked myself by bouncing between two cassette tape decks. This would be my first introduction to recording, and by the time I was 18 I had obtained a copy of Sonic Foundry Acid, a multi-tracking software capable of MIDI for keyboard parts. Soon I would switch to a combination of Cubase and a hard-disc recorder, producing a lot of singer songwriter content with friends in 2003 and 2004. I realized I had the knack and the personality to be an audio engineer and producer, so I asked my parents for help in attending a six month program at Musician's Institute in Hollywood, California.

I learned Pro Tools and practiced on SSL's and Neve's, realizing I could do this virtually anywhere, and quickly found myself employed in helping people with audio tasks and recordings bands and songwriters.

Since 2006, I've worked with clients across every genre to produce recordings all along the West Coast of the USA. I've worked to produce blues, acoustic, country, rock, hip-hop, EDM, spoken word, Norteño, CCM, and audio for video (audio post) including narration, foley, and field recording.
