As a recording engineer, I have had recording experience with many different genres of music in a multitude of recording studios around Bloomington, Indiana. Along with my own personal collection of gear and recording space, I am versatile with analog and digital recording formats and feel very comfortable engineering in whichever studio or space you have in mind!  With having years of training with my professors, I feel that I can accurately help bring your recordings to life and satisfied with the end result! 





Producing your session

I personally have a passion for working with people. Producing your session would allow me to work hands on with you and your ensemble, and ultimately enhance your project to be the best it can be. With my experience working on recordings with my professors and also working in many different ensembles myself, I am confident in my abilities that I can help you reach new levels in your performance and 







 Mixing and editing have been large focal points in my education at Jacobs. I have experience editing sound, music and dialog for film, as well as editing and mixing various types of ensembles. This ranges from orchestras, choirs, to folk music and rock bands. I am always open to new ideas and methods and I love working one on one with clients; ensuring you are completely satisfied with the end result. 



Starting drum-kit at the age of 10, I have studied percussion under a few instructors before I began my year in jazz studies; led by Professor Steve Houghton. This training through the years include many different types of drum-kit styles, basics in orchestral and latin percussion, and piano. Over the years I have been apart of many different studio recordings as the session drummer. Today I still play in over five ensembles outside of the music school; playing on average two to three gigs per week.
