Since I was a kid I've been fascinated with sound and music. Picking up my brother's guitar led me to play music, which in turn led me to recording. The first recordings I made were of my band in jr high on a 4 track cassette recorder. Later in high school, my band saved enough money to go record at a real studio. The process both fascinated and frustrated me. I was in complete wonder of what each knob and fader did on the console, but also in utter frustration that we didn't sound like the sound we had envisioned for ourselves in our heads. After high school, I went to internships and assistant engineering gigs at recording studios around Dallas, TX. Still, I wanted a more formal education and knowledge of the theory behind it all so I attended The Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences in Tempe, AZ and obtained an associate’s degree in the Master Recording Program. At The Conservatory, I fell in love with my post-production classes. For my internship, I was lucky enough to land a spot at Reel FX Creative Studios in Dallas. After graduation, I landed a gig as an assistant audio engineer at Fast Cuts Mix, a boutique commercial post house in Dallas. A year later, a call came from Reel FX. A spot had opened up and they wanted me to come back and start working as a Sound Designer and Mixer. My twelve years at Reel FX was full of great experiences such as high profile national Commercial and Corporate Work, Animated Feature Films and Short Films, Direct-to-DVD Releases, as well as Interactive and Virtual Reality projects. A special passion of mine is working on independent films and cause-related documentary work. In addition to my work as an independent sound designer and mixer, I also teach Audio Post-Production classes at MediaTech Institute in Dallas. Everything from dialogue de-noising to foley work to mixing for VR in 360º to the most esoteric sound design still fascinates me.
