My primary job is an installer of AV equipment. We are based out of CT, but I have installed systems in CT, NY, MA, D.C, and other areas. I design audio profiles for the audio devices we use and tune the audio in the systems we install.
On the side I am a trombone performer, as well as a recording engineer.
I have produced 2 full albums, one an acoustic album, the other a variety of choral and ensemble mixes.
I did a research project at UML studying various microphone, microphone placement, and room setup in 114 with a brass quintet.
Since graduating, I’ve started my own company doing mostly short run vinyl records. The process is totally wacky, but it results in an immediately playable record. I get a lot of business from smaller bands and labels that can’t afford a larger run of records, or people who just want to make something unique and collectable. I get to do a bit of recording, mixing, mastering as well to stay in this century as far as technology. The studio I rent a room in cuts master lacquers to be pressed, and I’m slowly learning that art as well.
I do short run work for a number of labels and bands including:
Broken World Media (CT), Driftwood Records (OR), Jumpstart Records (PA), Paper And Plastick (FL), Old Gray (NH), The World Is A Beautiful Place and I’m No Longer Afraid To Die (CT), Dads (NJ), Plow United (PA), Self Defense Family, etc.
I am currently a freelance Audio Engineer/Mixer and Producer for the commercial, broadcast, and film post-production industries. After nearly 10 years at one of NYC’s top commercial audio post houses, Sound Lounge, I recently left to work on the Sochi Olympics and then work for myself. I work either at my clients’ production facilities, or at my home studio. Current clients include NBC Sports, MSNBC, WWE, CBS News, Saatchi & Saatchi, Persistent Productions, to name a few.
I also run a production collective on the side. Working with a team of long-standing industry partners and friends, we handle full production on audio and video projects with a backbone in education or social awareness.

- Audio post mixing for NBC network’s promotional coverage of 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games
