I have over 14 years of professional experience in audio and production, including as front-of-house engineer and sound designer for national and international music festivals and multimedia venues. My unofficial career started in high school with a single radio show episode edited in "Cool Edit Pro." I have since served as an audio engineer in multiple venues and institutions, including as a graduate fellow and staff technician at the Center for Experimental Music and Intermedia (CEMI) from 2013 to 2017, helping produce hundreds of multimedia concerts, international festivals, talks, and events. I have taught music composition and audio technology at the college level since 2012.
From 2019 to 2022, I worked as audio technical director at the University of North Texas’ College of Music, focusing on jazz big bands, combos, and vocal ensembles. Currently, I freelance as location recording engineer, and work as technical director & manager for the Margo Jones Performance Hall, a historic venue built in 1921, part of the Texas Woman's University School of the Arts & Design.
Tools of the Trade
As a professional sound engineer, I believe in delivering uncompromising quality and adhering to best practices. When it comes to equipment, I have found the following brands to consistently meet my standards: Neumann, Schoeps, DPA, AEA, Shure, and Austrian Audio for microphones; Sound Devices, RME, and Zoom F Series for recorders and preamps; FabFilter and Izotope for audio plugins; Magix, Cockos, and Adobe for workstations. Although these are my preferred choices, there are many other excellent brands available in the market. Each brand offers unique strengths and may be particularly suitable for specific scenarios. I am committed to providing top-notch solutions tailored to your individual needs, hence, I always consider the specific requirements of each project and recommend the most appropriate equipment accordingly.
