double the distance = half the volume

beauty = truth and truth = beauty

I am a Recording Engineer, Mixer, and Producer based in Richland, WA. 

My studio is a great place for recording, mixing, overdubs, production, and experimentation. 

If a different space is needed, my system is road-racked and portable so it can go to another studio,  a performance venue, or anywhere you like to play...  a rehearsal space, a house, a church, a winery, a barn, a cave... anywhere.

Wherever there is power I can record and work...  I actually prefer recording in places other than studios... making records is more fun that way :)

As a mixer, I can bring new ears and perspective to the recordings you’ve made on your own or made elsewhere, in an amazing listening environment with fantastic monitoring.

As a producer, I can work with you to grow your songs, arrangements, orchestrations, and productions, whether you’re a songwriter with a guitar who wants to figure out how to bring a bigger life to your music or a band trying to find your sound. 

Whichever stage of the process I can be involved with, making recordings is what I love- nothing can match the joy of success in finding the elements that will bring out the best in a song and making a work that truly communicates.
