about & contact

I have always been interested in the audio aspect of music. Even back when I was much younger, (circa '92) I "invented" a way to have multi-tracks by means of daisy-chaining cassette decks over dubbing and that was exciting! When I got my first 4-track Portastudio I would work on capturing guitar tones with endless mic positions and quaint set-ups. Eventually, in 2003 I received official certification and I'm part of the Alumni of The Institute of Audio Research. Formal education open my mind to intuitive ideas I had about audio. From then on, I started working on unique ways of processing audio in both the digital and analog realm. The efforts have resulted in a culmination of methods of processing that I incorporate into my work.

 

I also play guitar and compose orchestral pieces with MIDI mock-ups.
