Sound designer – Composer – Audio Engineer

When I talk to people about my work, I notice that the terms sound design, composition, and audio mixing/mastering are often used interchangeably. And, if you ask me, that’s fine! I wouldn’t label a carpenter as a “Screwdriver Specialist” or a “Hammerist” either. The goal of a carpenter is simply to create a beautiful product using the best tools for the job.

That’s how I approach my work: I help content creators and businesses achieve the perfect sound for their production, utilizing music composition, sound design, and audio mixing/mastering as my tools.

Whether it’s creating a sound logo for a company, composing music and crafting soundscapes for a documentary-style podcast, recording/mixing music, or a combination of it all. The famous quote by audio pioneer Joe Meek says it all: “If it sounds right, it is right”, no matter which tool you use.
