about

Not a photo of me.

I am a recording engineer/mixer, music producer and electronic musician with about twenty-five years in the business and a fairly respectable list of record credits.  I’m also an Assistant Professor of Music Production and Engineering at Berklee College of Music and Faculty Advisor and General Manager of the Berklee Internet Radio Network.

I’ve done a lot of rock recording and mixing, and I specialize in creative studio production, remixes, drum programming, and electronic music. I have worked in many studios, mostly in Los Angeles, and I have my own modestly and idiosyncratically equipped personal studio called The Eye Socket.

I have an ongoing sci-fi/electro-rock project with Steve Ashburn called Real Space Noise. I am also a member of Viva Death, in which I do noises, samples and sound design.  Together with Trever Keith, I have a music production project called The Legion of Doom which occasionally does remixes, mashups, original music, and scoring and sound design for film and tv.

As an logical extension of our musical endeavors and general DIY ethos, some friends and I founded the independent label/collective Functional Equivalent Recordings in 2005.  FER has released records by Real Space Noise, Viva Death, and Tate Eskew.

I’ve toured in the U.S. and much of Europe, playing drums for a few different bands (including my own) and mixing front-of-house sound.  I’ve never been a particularly gifted drummer, but I could always be relied on not to play anything too complicated.  I’m also not a particularly good keyboard player.

For several years I did quite a lot of voiceover recording and ADR (dialogue replacement) at The Complex Studios and Wilshire Stages in Los Angeles.  I worked regularly on The Simpsons, Futurama and King of the Hill, and quite a few other TV shows and feature films.

I do a bit of writing, too, and I’m gradually using this website to expand those efforts (see the blog section).

About this site:   I’m not a professional web designer, but I’ve picked up a few things over the years.  I design and code this website myself (along with realspacenoise.com, the-legion-of-doom.com, and functionalequivalentrecordings.com), with the help of tools from the WordPress designers and community.  If you find something wrong, or if you have any questions, please let me know.
