Meet the SoundDex Team
‘The Wizard of Audio’, ‘Sonic Surgeon’, and ‘Artist of Sound’… just some of the terms my clients and the people I work with have called me. While funny, there is some truth to the clichés. Over the span of a very long an exciting career as a sound engineer, I have learned the dark art and science of masterfully creating sonic magic for TV, radio, and film.
What gives me the decided edge, is the fact that I take full ownership of the projects entrusted to me. I work tirelessly to create the best product possible, with the tools and skills that I have acquired over the years. Because of this unrelenting commitment to excellence, my peers in the industry have deemed it fit to single me out for my craft. I have helped win local and international awards for film and radio.
A key characteristic that many verbalize when working with me, is that I always go above and beyond what’s asked for. I’m not afraid to offer valuable input that has the potential to take a ‘good’ project and turn it into something ‘great’. My eagerness to help clients this way is extended to all that cross my path – be it students or up-and-coming sound engineers. But, my primary goal always remains, and it’s simply this: Every person that walks in a client, must leave as a good friend. These friends always return for more great service, a good cup of coffee and an outstanding piece of work that keeps them coming back for more.
