I record and produce music in NYC and beyond. I know my way around the studio, working on many levels in the recording industry, including Avatar Studios and more recently, Dreamland Recording Studio. As a live sound engineer, I've mixed countless bands including Noah and the Whale, Laura Marling, Adam Green and many others.  If it makes noise or needs to be captured, I've amplified, manipulated, tweaked and mastered its tone. Modern and vintage gear, expert knowledge, along with heart and soul go into every project I work on. I started SpeakerSonic as a way to work with artists on an intimate level. I offer reasonable rates for a polished sound, or a lo-fi sound for that matter.

I can produce every detail, or simply take an engineering role in your project.  I'm a pro at recording, production, arrangement, editing, mixing, mastering, an experienced vocal coach and I have an excellent feel on lots of instruments.

I'm also equipped with a rolodex of exceptionally talented instrumentalist ready to add anything you can think of, i.e. horns, strings, organ, vibes, vocals, jumping jacks, etc.  I excel in many types of music including, but not limited to, Indie Rock, Rock, Synth-Pop, Soul, Folk, Folk Rock, Blues, Metal, Jazz & Avant-Garde. I especially love the classic soul sound of the 50's and 60's and can tailor any style of music to your tracks.
