I am a freelance engineer, producer and rock DJ based in Long Beach, California, with over thirty years of experience in the music business.

I've recorded demos for musicians of such diverse genres as Blues, Zydeco, Punk, Rap, Prog Rock and Death Metal. I'm experienced with both multi-track analog studios and DAW software from Cubase, Cakewalk and Pro Tools. I own an array of equipment, including Fostex mixers, Audix mics and an ADAT. Musicians that have been signed from demos I produced include Lus Dus, DFR and Sarah Green. I've worked with various local studios, including Headway [Tiffany, Berlin] Mambo Sound [Sublime], and independent rap label Mussel Records.

I've done live sound for both touring bands [StoneBlue, Vagrant] and live venues [Surf City Saloon, The Doll Hut] as well as freelance mixing for Barron Audio-Visual, working events for multiple cities [Irvine, Corona] and organizations [American Cancer Society] using Allen and Heath mixers and JBL PA systems. I own a 500-watt Yamaha PA, EV speakers as well as a RANE MM12 monitor mixer. I've performed as a DJ for several birthdays, Halloween parties and weddings with my extensive personal music library.

And I also have an old Linn Drum machine that belonged to Frank Zappa. How cool is that?
