WHAT IS YOUR TYPICAL PROCESS FOR WORKING WITH A NEW CUSTOMER?
I always prefer to have a conversation to discuss the project upfront and determine what the client’s needs are, expectations, budget and timeline. The goal is to make sure that it will be a good fit mutually and establish open communication to avoid anything that might hinder the project from going smoothly.
WHAT EDUCATION AND/OR TRAINING DO YOU HAVE THAT RELATES TO YOUR WORK?
I am primarily self-taught, but have now been recording, engineering and producing various local projects for over 10 years. I also have completed a few mentorship programs in other professional recording studios.
DO YOU HAVE A STANDARD PRICING SYSTEM FOR YOUR SERVICE?
My hourly rates start at $55 (per hour). I am willing and do offer flat project fees as well, but that is determined on many variables which need to be discussed and agreed upon upfront prior to determining the fee.

WHAT TYPES OF CUSTOMERS DO YOU WORK WITH?
Any artist or person that is open-minded, friendly and challenges me to think of new ways to do things. I have in the past worked mostly with singer-songwriter musicians or rock based bands as well as contemporary Christian and faith-based music. It ranges from full bands that don’t need much help other than for me to just record their sound professionally to artists that don’t have a band but they have the sketches of a good song and they need me for both production and recording. I have also recorded voiceover/audiobook projects and some basic audio restoration as well. I’m open to working with anyone really as long as I know I can offer value, expertise, insight and in the end create a high quality product that everyone is happy with.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE A CUSTOMER LOOKING TO WORK WITH YOU?
Everything starts with a conversation. I’m friendly, very humble and easy to talk to so just contact me and let’s discuss your project. From there, we can figure out all the details… from pre-production planning, to managing expectations, timelines and of course budget. Ultimately you have to like and respect the people you are working with in order for a project to go smoothly. It's about the people. Let’s get to know each other a little bit through enough conversation to make sure we’re a good fit… and then let’s get some work done.
