    About me

    I am a multi Award winning and Academy Nominated Post Sound Mixer and Sound Designer, with extensive Credits in Feature films, Television, Short and Documentary films, Commercials and Trailers, Web formats. I am experienced in both large Lot and small facility work environments, hardware/digital consoles and control surfaces and all formats from 7.1 to Stereo... fluent and at home with all current versions of Pro Tools. I also have a full-blown 5.1 Pro Tools HDX sound Studio at my home as well, complete with an Avid Icon console/control surface, full array of plugins, FX and Foley libraries, outboard gear, and HD Satellite Video projection.

    Additional Information

    "Starting out as both a musician/songwriter, and being involved in the sound end of the entertainment industry for more than two thirds of my life, I've always been fascinated and drawn to creating and making stories, emotions, and feelings come to life through the use of sound. Whether it's music and the mix of a song or score, or the design, mix and placement of sounds in a film or television project - the use, as well as how these sound elements are used and melded together can create a completely different experience for the viewer or listener.

    To help a Director, Producer or Artist achieve their vision of a project -THAT has always been a challenge and a powerful attraction for me - and even more so, to hopefully bump up that overall experience and end result far above what was ever envisioned.

    - For me, it's like playing with a giant chemistry set - and it's getting bigger all the time - how cool is THAT ?!! "
