"As an engineer, I create a laid-back comforting atmosphere while I capture sounds that are high-quality and catered to the artist’s goals. If it fits the artist and the material, I try to utilize unique approaches that fit into the context of modern recordings while sticking out amongst the crowd.
As a producer, I typically work one-on-one with vocalists. A multi-instrumentalist on guitar, bass, keyboards, and anything you can program with a synth, I function as a one-man-band supporting vocalists’ ideas instrumentally. I also call in the help of studio musicians when needed. Starting with the piano/vocal demos of a singer/songwriter, the lyrics of an emcee, or something spontaneous, I create fleshed out song arrangements. I also work with bands, helping them pick and arrange material for the studio and guiding them through the studio process to their goals."
