My priority is to get on the same wavelength with you and your music—to deeply and intuitively understand where you're coming from and what the music is all about, so very early on in the project, we are finishing each other's sentences.
I was lucky to be given a great sense of pitch, harmony, rhythm, and dynamics—which I've spent my life developing so I can help musicians translate their ideas into meaningful music. I'm a performer myself, so I have an empathic connection to what musicians are experiencing in the studio.
Yes, my creative Right Brain is well-developed, but I'm also enough of a left-brained nerd to have mastered the technical aspects of recording, so that they are second nature. To me the emotional impact of the music is the why of the technical side.
