Recording Engineer

Values

Professionalism

Before I press record, I value your trust and comfort. Communication, punctuality, flexibility, and expediency are my business priorities. As the client, you shouldn’t have to worry about anything but nailing that take.

Sound Quality

To me, a great recording should not just be an accurate capture of an event— it should be a larger-than-life sonic experience. I strive to produce clear recordings that draw listeners into your musical space.

Musicality

As a composer myself, I understand that the music always comes first. I care just as much about fulfilling your artistic vision as you do, and I will do whatever is possible to achieve that goal with you.


About

I’m a Baltimore-based audio engineer specializing in classical and jazz music recording. I’ve studied in the Recording Arts & Sciences program at the Peabody Conservatory for the last five years under the tutelage of Scott Metcalfe and Ed Tetreault, which has provided me with a strong foundation in all things audio engineering.

For the past two summers, I’ve worked as a recording engineer at the Tanglewood Music Center under the supervision of Grammy award-winning producer and engineer Tim Martyn, and Carl Talbot of Musicom Productions. It was here that I really learned to hone in on the craft of classical recording.

At Tanglewood, I’ve been the lead recording engineer on concerts by some of the top artists in the classical industry, including the Emerson String Quartet, Jeremy Denk, Thomas Adès, Paul Lewis, the JACK Quartet, Stefan Jackiw, Igor Levit, Kirill Gerstein, members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and numerous fellows of the Tanglewood Music Center. I have assisted on recordings for many other excellent artists, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra itself.

As a freelancer in Baltimore, I’ve recorded and streamed dozens of audition tapes, concerts, and recitals for professionals and students alike. I currently co-run livestreamed concerts at the jazz venue An die Musik on Charles Street.
