I am a freelance Music Producer, Recording & Mix Engineer based in Watford, UK.

The bulk of my work is split between my personal studio, where I do most of my mixing & vocal recording and The Friary Studios where I work as a recording engineer. In my spare time I also work as a gear reviewer and writer for Musixon Magazine.

PERSONAL STUDIO

Watford

Well equipped for vocal recordings, overdubbing, mixing and music production. My personal studio features a 32-channel PMI Toft Audio desk, converters from Antelope Audio as well as Universal Audio, a wide selection of microphones and a vocal booth.

THE FRIARY STUDIOS

Milton Keynes

Situated in the middle of a golf-course our residential studios feature the very same 48-channel SSL G-series desk used by countless legends.

I came to the UK with the sole purpose of developing my craft and career. Over the past 7 years I've worked with some wonderful people and gained priceless experiences in the world of music. I am incredibly passionate for what I do and whilst I still need to pay my bills, money comes second for me. Feel free to get in touch with me even if you are working on a tight budget. I treat every project with the same attention to detail, precision and dedication, regardless of its budget. I only work on projects that I truly like and can connect with on an emotional level. If I believe I am not the right person for the job, I will always recommend somebody else.

TESTIMONIALS

Mastering Engineer

 

(U2, Jack White, The Killers, Pixies, The Rolling Stones, The 1975, Damien Rice, Katy Perry)

"Your mixes are superb! It's too easy sometimes to over produce a mix and lose the heart of the performance, but you have not done that. Instead, you've captured the raw energy of the band whilst keeping it tight and sonically competitive.

Great work!"

Vocal Recording

My personal studio is perfectly suitable for vocal recordings and overdubbing in a fully capable vocal booth with a variety of high-quality microphones.

Mixing

Most of my mixing is done from my personal studio on a Toft Audio ATB console, but for more complex projects I use the SSL G4000 desk at The Friary Studios,

Music Production

This is a service in which I oversee and manage every process of the recording and production of a song by collaborating with artists and musicians. I try to understand the artist's emotional intentions and help him/her express them in their song.

Please fill out as many of the fields as you can. If you are unsure about any of them, don't worry - I'm here to help. Leave them empty and I will try to advise you on what is best for you and your music.

If you can, please include a link to your music. If you have a rough version of the recording you need mixed, be sure to send it over. This is incredibly helpful when I'm trying to asses the complexity of the work that's needed.
