Personal Quote:

I love what I do and over the years I've had the privilege of collaborating with many seasoned filmmakers, as well as directors just starting out. It is always exciting to realize their sonic vision, and guide them toward seeing how sound can create an intriguing and supportive landscape for the story they want to tell.
