Sound Design - Recording - Mix

I started my career as an audio engineer and musician with one of the most amazing mentors one could ever hope for, BBC's engineer Bryan Stott. My fascination with sound pushed me to sound design aural environments for games, movies and commercials. I also recorded and mixed innumerable records for producers and artists some reaching Gold and Platinum awards when sales were a thing.
After working for Digidesing as support and localization engineer, I became very proficient with ProTools, but I also work with Ableton Live, Reason, Logic, SunVox and any other kind of software or hardware that allows me to make noise.



I've been always fascinated by story telling, I am happy when I can tell a compelling simple story in my radio commercials in 30 or 60 seconds. I paint with sound what the eyes can't see. Then I discovered the magic of video editing.
Images, color and transitions add much more to my bag of tricks, now it is complete. The ability to edit picture and sound design makes for tighter concept and in the end the best product possible.
Then compositing and finishing puts the cherry on the cake.



I've arranged and produced records as well as innumerable jingles, music beds and signature sounds for commercials.
At age 16, I had the honor of attending Berklee College Of Music for 2 years, and although I didn't graduate, the knowledge and experience I obtained was priceless.
It is a pleasure producing when you work with the best musicians and talent in the world.



Programming is a fascination of mine, I remember always running some of my software on my Commodore 64 as a kid. It was fun to push the little machine to its limits and output amazing things.
The Commodore 64 was my introduction to sinthesys and we milked that sound chip like nobody did.
I write C/C++, Objective-C, java, javascript, jquery, and php. I like to think I am language agnostic, so I am not afraid to jump on a new one if the project requires it.
