Recording Engineer

Services

I help musicians preserve their best performances, and then present those performances at their best. All of my services are work-for-hire, so the client owns the final product. I offer:

  • High resolution, on-location multitrack audio recording for any application or genre
  • Single- or multi-camera 4K video production of musical performances
  • Single- or multi-camera live streaming services for musical performances
  • Discreet, undetectable audio editing between multiple takes
  • Advanced background noise removal
  • Detailed, thoughtful mixing for any genre of music
  • Mastering for music mixed by other engineers, or myself
  • And more…
I offer on-location recording and streaming services so you can reach audiences who aren’t yet comfortable leaving their homes.

Values

Professionalism

Before I press record, I value your trust and comfort. Communication, punctuality, flexibility, and expediency are my business priorities. As the performer, you shouldn’t have to focus on anything but creating your music.

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 have a Master of Arts in Audio Sciences with a Recording & Production focus from the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University. At Peabody, I was a graduate assistant for the Recording Arts & Sciences department, where I studied under the tutelage of Scott Metcalfe and Ed Tetreault for six years. My education at Peabody has provided me with a strong foundation in all things audio engineering.

For two summers I 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. At Tanglewood, I served as 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 broadcasted recordings for the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

As a freelancer in Baltimore, I’ve recorded and livestreamed hundreds of concerts, recitals, and audition tapes for professionals and students alike. I currently operate livestream concerts at the mostly-jazz venue An die Musik on Charles Street and co-produce the Candelight Concert Series by Community Concerts at Second Presbyterian. In 2020 I recorded, mixed, and mastered the album “Hearing Stars” by composer collective CNSNC, performed by the Bergamot String Quartet.

Watch my production of Jordan Chase’s composition, “In Realms of Passing Dreams,” performed by John Marcel Williams. I recorded, mixed, and edited the audio and video for the entire project, with additional camera operation by Noah Tingen.

The album Hearing Stars by CNSNC Collective and Bergamot Quartet was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Andrew Bohman. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, or support the artists and buy the album on Bandcamp, where you can download at full CD quality.
