Music Production

Experience and Philosophy

I’ve been producing and recording music for the past 16 years. I have had the fortune of working with and learning from some of the greatest engineer/producers in the music industry including the legendary Bob Power who has been an inspiration to me and a great source of production knowledge. In my 24 years in New York City and through my extensive travels throughout Europe and Latin America, I have had the pleasure of working and presenting in some of the most beautiful recording and synth studios in the world.

I primarily produce and sound design music that incorporates electronic sound design and acoustic instruments. Although much of my music is disco/house or synth wave, I have produced a wide array of styles from almost purely acoustic to experimental electronic. I have also done music for film. I am an Ableton Certified Trainer and extremely proficient on all of Ableton’s Synthesizers. I am also an expert on the synths of the Arturia V Collection 8 and have pretty extensive experience programming Moog synths, so synth programming is really one of my first loves.

I am also a multi-instrumentalist, so I have contributed both bass and keyboard to a wide array of the records that I have produced.

Here is a Spotify Playlist of some of the music that I have produced, sound designed, recorded and played either bass or keyboard on. Below are several newer releases where I did all of the instrumentals, sound design and production.
