I'm a producer, recording engineer, songwriter, and session musician in Pasadena, CA. I love making records of all kinds. I have a background in jazz, having studied  performance and composition under Mark Dresser and Marty Ehrlich, and a deep love for technical production. For more than a decade, I was a staff engineer at Tiny Telephone Studios in the Bay Area, where I produced hundreds of records. I play a bunch of instruments, and I write string and woodwind arrangements. I'm also constantly adding to my own collection of microphones, synthesizers, drum machines, and other wonderful tools and instruments. Lately, I've been focused on the construction of Altamira Sound, a two room facility in a 3800sf warehouse in Alhambra, along with my partners Rob Shelton, Carly Bond, and Andrew Maguire.
