Sound Designer - Audio Engineer - Music Producer - Innovator


A little info about me

I am a 26 year old graduate from Florida State University, College of Music with a BFA Degree in Music and certificate in Violin Performance. I also currently hold a MM degree in Music Production, Technology, and Innovation from Berklee College of Music (Valencia Campus)

I am currently working at the Interlochen Center For The Arts, Motion Picture Arts Department as the 2017 Filmmaker-In Residence for Sound Design, Recording and Mixing. I am working closely with a select group of up and coming filmmakers with a custom-made curriculum based on the fundamentals and innovations for sound design for film as a method for masterful storytelling.

As a classically trained violinist, under the masterful tutelage of Eliot Chapo and Corrine Stilwell, my knowledge of music started from the roots of music, but more recently I have been with digital recording and synthesizing music using technology and modern compositional techniques.

I  have had experience in various fields in the music industry as head engineer and producer for Red Carpet Productions as well as field recordings and formally at Gasoline Alley Recording Studio, both located in Tallahassee, FL. You can also find me collaborating as a studio violinist and producer with the Ethnikids as a studio musician playing violin in multiple styles of music with commercial releases with Dim Mak Records and collaborations with LA artist and producer KickRaux.

One thing you'll notice from my portfolio is the wide amount of projects I partake in. I believe in diversity. I participate in  Sound Design for Music, Film, Video Games, and beyond. 

The sounds on this website are only a fraction of projects that I have had a chance to work on, but serve as a good sample of my sound as an violinist, recording engineer, producer, and collaborator. 

So please, take a look around, listen, connect with me, and enjoy your stay!
