    Mix Engineer, Recording Engineer, and Producer in San Diego, California

  • About

    I got my start as an assistant engineer at the world famous Record Plant Studios in Los Angeles, CA where I had an opportunity to learn from some of the biggest and best names in recording. As an independent engineer and mixer in L.A., I was lucky enough to work with some amazing artists and producers, including LeAnn Rhymes, Reba McIntire, Eminem, Pharrell, and many more. Along the way I also engineered and mixed over a dozen exclusive sessions for iTunes with artists like Ray LaMontagne, The Pretenders, Five For Fighting, The Shins, Fanfarlo, and Norah Jones. I did extensive mixing work for famed Japanese producer Tetsuya Kamuro that earned several number one spots in Japan. In 2010, I relocated to San Diego where I helped build my new home base, the Lost Ark Studio, where I have engineered and mixed for hundreds of artists, both signed and independent.
