Service Description

Working creatively with audio isnít a small amount of work, but is also a great source of satisfaction and I take pride in being a part of the process. It requires attention to detail, dedication, talent and a strong sense of direction to be able to collaborate with different people in different industries to produce top-notch quality material on time. These are all things that I excel in and strive to achieve with every project for every one of my clients.

I believe I can be a valuable asset to your production. Iím a dedicated audio professional and I take great pride in my work to support the story and themes that are the heart of the project Iím working on through the creative use of audio. I work incredibly hard and take my work very seriously, yet I believe that being able to have a sense of humor to keep things light and more enjoyable when possible is incredibly important (especially during crunch time). You wonít find another freelancer who wishes to collaborate as much as I, and will work to any end to make the audio being produced by your studio stand out with the highest bar of quality and creativity on time and on budget.
