About Me

Dear Filmmaker,

I'm a union-eligible sound man with the experience of hundreds of shoots, responding to your ad in Production Hub for your shoot.

I have all my own gear and you will hear everything recorded cleanly and clearly, and I do it all myself.

I use the Schoeps CMIT 5 boom mic, DPA 6060 lav mics for my Sennheiser G4 wireless systems, the Zoom F8 recorder, the Ambient Nano Lockit time code boxes for at least 2 cameras that support timecode, and the Ambient LockIt Smartslate.

I provide Comtek receivers to give you and a few other people a scratch track to listen in on. 

Once we are done shooting, I can provide a USB cable to copy over the recorded audio onto your DIT system.

You will get 2 folders with both polywaves and grouped tracks.

My gear is compact but very effective as a great many of my repeat clients can attest to, with dedicated indoor and outdoor setups for easy mobility.

I can record “wild lines” wherever possible for the best takes, as well as various on the spot foley effects to enhance the sound of a scene.

I can also record voiceovers and ADR re-recordings in Pro Tools DAW, and any other special events that require audio production.

I am a problem solver for a wide variety of sound issues on set and I always champion the Director and defer to their judgement.
That said, if I see an audio problem I will let you know as soon as possible so we can make the necessary adjustments. My job is to simplify things, so that a Director doesn't have to worry because they hear it.

I’m easy going and I know how to make the actors feel comfortable but I always keep it on a professional level
so that I can get the audio recording needed for the scene.

I've been working in Production Audio since 2000 and have worked live events of all kinds since 1987.

Here’s a small write-up about me in the Santa Barbara Independent, under the tab of “Santa Barbara’s Unique Gigs”:


My love of audio recording comes from my experience as pro musician and engineer where we learn about all the mics and their uses instead of being trained on how to use these mics, along with how to maximize their potential.

I use my equipment based on my own experience over many shoots and can react to anomalies in the filming
process or any audio problems, on the fly, with little or no down time.

I am highly tech savvy, and can be versatile whether it’s for someone's reel, a bigger production with multiple cameras, a corporate shoot, recording
a keynote speech, a virtual 360 shoot, a classroom recording, a live concert performance recording, with very efficient plans and setups to get the most out of your production.

Please give me a call (818) 203-8062

For more information on me, check me out on either IMDB or just Google me!

In July 2021, I completed my 3rd feature in a row for Second Nature Films that were shot in Nevada and Alabama. Since then, I have worked on consistently bigger projects while  expanding to make myself available for the low-budget Filmmaker over the years. I completed 5 features this year in Bangor, Maine, Joshua Tree, as well as Los Angeles and all destinations South of the OC on a regular basis in addition to regularly shooting in Nevada, also this year's Long Beach Grand Prix for IMSA, and the ACL Finals, as well as smaller corporate shoots and interviews for TV shows for specific networks and coverage of an LA City Councilman's campaign for Mayor for a production company for Vice.
This month,
I completed a shoot in Florida, and will be coming back in June this year.

I have been in the industry since 1990.
