ABOUT

Originally hailing from southeast Idaho, I am an audio engineer trained at the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences, as well as a drummer. I come from a classically-trained background, and am willing to work in a variety of musical environments. If you are interested in jamming, session work, or need an engineer to record, mix, or master your music, feel free to message me here on Bandmix.
