I have been a recording engineer for twenty years, a live mixing engineer for fifteen, and increasingly find myself in the role of producer as well.  I have owned and operated The Light House recording studio for almost ten years.

I am passionate about what I do, whether I am helping a budding artist turn a rough home recording into a demo that they can be proud of, or meticulously polishing every detail to build a complex mix to perfection. When I do my best technically and creatively, I feel fortunate to be doing something that I love, utilizing both the gifts I have been given and the skills I have developed.

I have many examples of the work I have done, from bluegrass to hip-hop, from rock to folk, as well as voiceovers and audio books.
