FREELANCE RECORDING ENGINEER & MIXER

Through the operation of large format sound consoles, digital audio workstations, and hardware audio processors, I seamlessly ran hundreds of high-pressure recording sessions while maintaining a creative environment. In addition, I have also had the opportunity to serve as both an editor and mix engineer on dozens of albums and demos for both major label artists and independents alike.  Highlights of my career include:

  • Participation on two of the five albums nominated for Best Country Album at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards: Lee Ann Womack's "The Way I'm Livin'" and Miranda Lambert's "Platinum" (The Winner!).

  • Credited on a half dozen RIAA Platinum Award-Winning albums by The Band Perry, George Strait, Lionel Richie and Keith Urban.
