About Me

I'm a San Francisco Bay Area based sound mixer available for both union and non-union productions. I have extensive experience on feature and television narratives, documentaries & commercials. Companies I have worked for include Universal, Sony Pictures, CBS, NBC, Fox, NBC Sports Network, Animal Planet, Discovery, Nickelodeon, ESPN, A&E, and Warrior Poets. I have worked on nearly every conceivable type of production from intimate interviews, live news broadcast to supervising full blown 7 person sound crews for extensive television, commercial and feature work.

My core audio equipment includes: 12-track Zaxcom Nomad mixer/recorder, NINE Zaxcom recording wireless systems, timecode support for 4 cameras plus smart slate, 6 Comtek IFB Monitors, a full suite of DPA microphones (exterior boom, interior boom and lavaliers) and bag and cart configurations.

Production roles I work in are:
Sound Mixing
Boom op
Music Playback w/timecode

UPDATED 4/11/2017: I am now available for dialog editing, clean up and 2.1 mixing with the latest software tools including iZotope RX 5. In addition to my extensive work in production audio, I also have a strong background in audio post-production – sound editing, sound FX and design, foley, dialog editing, ADR, voiceover and re-mixing.
