About Me

I've been working exclusively as a freelance production sound mixer since 2006 and I am a lifelong musician with an ear for detail. My experience covers a wide range of production types including fast-paced reality shows and high-end commercials and I am easily adaptable to the rhythm of any style of project.

It's important as a sound mixer to be personable and courteous yet swift and accurate when it comes to placing mics on talent, especially with high-profile subjects
or those unfamiliar with wearing a hidden mic. I am excellent at breaking the ice and helping to make talent feel comfortable while also expertly hiding mics swiftly and properly the first time, which can be some of the trickiest things a mixer faces in their day-to-day work.

I use industry-standard equipment including a Sound Devices 664 multitrack audio recorder, Lectrosonics wireless mics with Sanken lavs, timecode slate and generators, Sennheiser G4 IFBs, and I have access to much more equipment through my network of professional colleagues. Need more crew? Let me recommend some top-notch players. And even if I'm unavailable for your shoot I'd be happy to help you find a mixer that suits your needs. Feel free to reach out anytime, even after normal business hours.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile!
