About Me

I'm a Miami location sound recordist who will capture terrific tracks for your interview, commercial, documentary, reality show or web video. With more than 30 years telling compelling stories, I’m a complete team member with a keen eye for production and a sharp ear for sound.

And as a field recordist I’ve recorded the sounds of Everglades pig frogs from a kayak, the staccato dominoes of ethnic Miami and the melodic chanting of Buddhist monks in Tibet.

In recent months I've recorded sound for:

Documentary filmmakers Kiran Deol (Sundance Take Five), Tod Lending (Legacy), Alison Layman (Ai Weiwei, Never Sorry) and Lee Hirsch (Bully)

Interviews with Serena Williams, Andy Murray & French Rapper Booba

Webcasts live for The Cooking Channel & Abbot Laboratories

Voice Over with actor Andy Garcia & quarterback Dan Marino for FOX Sports

Corporations Bacardi, Carnegie Hall, Heineken, Mercedes Benz, MetLife, Nike, Red Bull, U.S. Coast Guard, Visit Florida, Verizon


I'm currently operating with the Sound Devices SD 633 6 channel, ten-track mixer/recorder, Lectrosonics L Series wireless, Sennheiser MKH60 and MKH8050 mics, Tram & Countryman lavs, and Denekce & Moze Gear time code.

I have been in the industry since 2009.
