Recording/Mixing Engineer

& Music Producer

Juno Award Winner for Rock Album of The Year 2020 & 2021

The Glorious Sons – A War On Everything and JJ Wilde – Ruthless

A little about me…

I’m a recording/mixing engineer and music producer, based out of Toronto. I’ve been working in the industry professionally since 2007, starting as a staff engineer at Metalworks Studios, becoming head engineer of the facility, and working as a freelance Producer/Engineer/Mixer since 2014. I recently had the honour of working as an engineer on two Juno Award-winning albums: The Glorious Sons A War On Everything and JJ Wilde Ruthless, which both won Rock Album of the Year awards in 2020 & 2021, respectively.

My main goal in working with an artist is to bring their vision to life through the recording process. I want to bring out their musicality and their best performance. I take a musical approach to recording, while still working to keep a high standard sonically. I’m a musician myself – I love working on songs, sounds, parts and arrangements with an artist, to help elevate their work and creative vision. It’s all about the song, the vibe, and capturing a great performance.

I have a lot of experience recording and mixing both analog and completely digital (“In The Box”) and everything in-between; from full band live off the floor recording, to production/synth-based music. I mix primarily on a hybrid setup (Pro Tools & plugins, summing mixer, and some choice analog outboard gear), and I have many years of experience recording and mixing on large format analog consoles as well.
