About Me

Denver and Washington DC based location sound mixer with over 26 years of television production experience in studio, field and post. Mixing sound for 17 years for local, national, and international clients for ENG, film, commercials, episodic television, documentary, corporate, and music productions. Ready to travel anywhere for your next production.

My sound package includes Sound Devices 664, Schoeps and Sennheiser shotguns, 8 Lectrosonics wireless mic systems, Sanken lavalier mics, Comtek IFB, Ambient Lockit Time Code Slate and Tiny Lockit boxes, and pellican cases for travel. Basic sound kit is comprised of 3 wireless, boom and mixer.

I am also a creative and resourceful video editor with a strong understanding of what it takes to produce high quality media for markets of all kinds. Good editors love great sound, and I understand both worlds.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Mass Media Communication. I have a strong passion for media, and I'm ready to travel for your next production! Please click on my website link for more information.

I have been in the industry since 1991.
