About:

I’m an award-winning sound designer, editor, and mixer serving NYC and LA's video production, advertising and film communities.   I'm passionate about crafting high quality sonic content to enhance storytelling for TV, film, digital media and video games.

From recording VO to the final mix, I’ve worked on thousands of broadcast spots for networks like Nickelodeon, VH1, Comedy Central, History, TruTV, MTV and A&E.  I’m an expert at sound design and mixing for animation, advertising and promos, and have contributed to several Promax Gold winning campaigns over the years. 

In the film world, I have filled every role from Supervising Sound Editor to Rerecording Mixer, Dialog Editor, Foley Artist and ADR Recordist.  I’ve completed audio post production on over 75 feature films, documentaries, shorts and series that have won accolades at major festivals such as Tribeca, Toronto, Austin and Cannes.

On the web, my work with Vox, VICE, Vsauce, StarTalk, Mic, TIME and HuffPost has collectively reached hundreds of millions of viewers.  Several projects were Vimeo Staff Picks and Shorts of the Week, and a few even went viral.  I’m also an avid gamer, and have worked with major game studios such as Riot Games, Electronic Arts, Irrational Games (Bioshock) and Gearbox Software.  With the advent of VR/360, Dolby Atmos and DTS-X technology, I’ve been eager to jump into the fray and push the boundaries of immersion through the creative use of sound.

I come from a musical background, and have played in bands ranging from a Jazz ensemble to a touring Death Metal band.  Seeking a way to combine my love of music with my affinity for technology, I attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston and earned a Bachelor of Music specializing in Electronic Production and Design.

I started my career in the fast paced NYC advertising world at Oink Ink/Verbatim Studios in Times Square, and worked on national campaigns with clients like AT&T, Staples, Home Depot and Time Warner.  Seeking to expand my skill-set, I moved around the corner to HOThead Studios where I spent several years as a Sound Designer, Mixer and Composer for Viacom Networks.  Recently, I moved to sunny LA where I'm working from my own fully equipped Pro Tools HD studio in Glendale.
