Musician, Audio Engineer, Home Studio, Composer

Born in the mid 1960s to a music-teacher father, and have been exposed to a broad range of music since before I could talk.

I took an interest in electronics, which keeps me employed, but the real passion for electronics was always in music and gear.

I had a professional studio at one time but after a couple decades dormant I am now restoring that gear into my home studio.

I'm using a Mac with Studio One and currently 16 channels of converters going to a console for analog mixdown. The goal is to have 24 tracks mixdown.

In order to keep in practice with mixing skills, I make my own electronic music mostly for fun, but would like to expand musically through collaboration if anyone is interested.

I am also willing to do analog mixes if anyone wants to send projects or stems. Ideally I would like to trade mixing time for collaboration but initially I am willing to do mixes for free to get demos out there.

My time is mostly limited to weekends when time is available.

If anyone is interested in analog mixes please see the partial gear list

I've been building my own gear as well since the early 1980s.

I live in the Mid-Hudson region of New York.

I have connections to the pro audio gear business, and briefly had a 500 series optical compressor on the market (J-Lab JLA-3)

Most of my tunes on soundcloud are a few years old and mixed ITB. Only recently have I moved back to analog. It's mostly eclectic and soundtrack-like but I can venture into more conventional territory with collaboration.
