I was born in Pittsfield Massachusetts and since then have lived (in order) in Rhode Island, New York, Chicago, Rhode Island, North Carolina, Arizona, and now again in North Carolina.

At the age of seven I was intrduced to a drumset and have been addicted to it ever since. Once I realized that I could no longer advace on my own, I sought out drum lessons. I began playing professionaly in 1997 when I was called on to play drums on a cd for a local band. That is when I found a new obsession. Recording. I immedately began piecing together a small home studio and recording my own and other local bands. Since then both my playing, and recording career have ballooned. I play in 3 bands and am regularly called on to fill in when a drummer can't make a gig.

I absolutly love playing drums, but decided to go to school for recording. I attended and graduated from the Conservatory Of Recording Arts And Sciences in Tempe Arizona. I learned the ins and outs of both digial and analog recording. I am proficient on large consoles such as Neve VR, SSL G and E series, and Neotec Elite.

After school I interned at Epipnonic Studios and with Flintrock Productions. I still maintain close contact and working relationships with both facilities.

It is my desire to help fellow musicians and bands to have their voice heard.

My Skills

Audio Engineer

Category: Music
I am a freelance audio engineer who happens to own a recording studio.
Inphase recording studio is a small ProTools based facility located in downtown Newton NC, which is less than an hour north of Charlotte. I offer Tracking, Editing, Mixing, and Mastering of musicians and bands, and I am able to make my services mobile. I also offer commercial production for radio and television to small and large businesses. If you are an engineer or producer as well, my facility is availabe to you to work out of for a small day rate. I offer consultation to smaller studios and home studios. If you like to record your own music but can't get the mix right, then I can help. Bring or mail your session or audio files by and I will mix it for you or you can do it yourself and I will coach you.

I work in conjunction with Revenant Designs, a video recording and editing company, when I am called on for television commercials and for recording live concerts for DVD.

I offer a set day rate, but I can work with almost any budget to get you the best product you can afford.

I also work out of the facility that I interned at and have full access to all the benefits of a large studio such as their SSL G+ and API consoles, and enormous microphone locker, and heaps of outboard gear (real gear). If it is in you budget, then Epiphonic Studios is the best money can buy, and is only a fraction of what you might expect to pay in larger

If you are looking for a quality recording and a professional atmosphere, then contact me and we will schedule a tour of either 1 or both facilities.
