Recording Sound since 1995


Let me start by saying, I love being a soundman. My career has given me the chance to collaborate with many colorful people and talented artists. I am truly thankful and humbled for all the experiences I have had and look forward to the continued journey. I truly can't imagine another profession I would rather have.

Ok that was the touchy feely stuff, here is my background....

 I am a dedicated sound recordist. What does that mean? It means that recording sound for video is what I do every day.   I started out my career as a full time employee in 1994 at a video production company so I have experience in assisting multiple departments.  If the crew is small and my workload permits I will move a sandbag,  open a c-stand, help set up a light, or help move a camera.  What I don't do is go out Monday as a shooter, Tuesday as a grip, and Wednesday as art department.  Everyday I work I'm recording sound.   As a result of my focus on sound,  I have the ability to maximize the recorded signal(s) and problem solve quickly under time-critical situations. These abilities only come with years of experience.  Audio is the one department that so often no one is paying any attention to unless someone later hears a problem in post.  That is the reason you want to hire someone you can trust recording your audio.    Over the years I have learned that not all directors work the same.  Some like heavy communication, some a little, some not at all.  I am  very comfortable in establishing parameters before we begin to shoot. An example, I can notify you every time I hear a plane, siren, or someone cough in the background or limit the interaction to what you desire.  Whatever level of communication you request, my goal is to protect you.   I want you to be happy with your product, and as a result, I hope to have the chance to work with you again.
