Day one at Village Studios, he found himself in the editing room with David Byrne finishing the opening of True Stories. His hard work, easy demeanor and impeccable ear elevated him from getting coffee for artists to working in the studio at Village, 7th Level, Signet Studios and Capital Studios.
His clients continue to be an endless list of renowned and upcoming artists. From Warrant, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Goo Goo Dolls, Michael Jackson, Iggy Pop and Green Day to Lou Reed, Eric Clapton and B.B. King. In addition, he has extensive experience working on film and television scores, 7th Heaven, Ugly Betty, 8 Simple Rules, The Wedding Singer, Ace Ventura and Walk the Line to name a few.
