I have been mixing TV shows, music and creating sound design for over 15 years. I have mixed numerous documentaries, concerts, films, and  commercials. I own an extensive library of sound effects, most of which I have spent years creating. I have been running Protools since it's infancy, along with many of the third party applications that interface with it. I have a very strong music background which gives me a great advantage in the mixing world. Music is the backdrop for almost every project, I take editing that content very seriously. I pay great attention to detail. I believe my audio mixes stand out greatly. I make sure every word, every sound effect, every nuance and musical note is placed correctly, resulting in a clear, enjoyable experience.
