Audio Services

My work has covered the spectrum from run-and-gun ENG audio in News and Sports, to Commercial and Documentary projects with a small crew and tight locations, to Feature sets with large crews, complex gear needs and baffling complexity.

Experience

I have 20 plus years of sound experience in a wide range of environments and situations, in Texas, the United States, and Worldwide. All the way from howler monkey studies in Costa Rica, to Travel Channel shows in Malaysia and Singapore, to documentary shorts in South Africa and Swaziland, to Marijuana docu-series in the mountain towns of Colorado

I have worked for all the major networks on shows such as 48 hours, 20/20, NBC Nightly News, EPSNs World Series of Poker, 60 minutes and NFL Networks coverage of major games. Reality shows like A&E My 600lb Life, Discovery Channel Renovation Nation, Cooking Channel Unique Sweets, and A&E Shipping Wars. Commercials for Patron Tequila, Finlandia Vodka, Yeti Coolers, DELL Computers and Yahoo. Documentaries for The New Yorker, Showtime, HBO and National Geographic.

Equipment

Only the best professional audio gear is part of my package. No plasticized Zoom recorders, no consumer quality Sennheiser or Sony wireless. I use the Sound Devices solid-state digital mixer-recorder 833 (6-12 channel). My wireless lavaliers are all Lectrosonics Digital UHF units with small high-powered SMQ transmitters and Sanken or TRAM microphones. I have a variety of shotgun microphones for inside and outside applications, ranging from the Schoeps C-MIT to Sanken CS-3E. My kit is filled out with a Betso smart slate as well as Betso TX and RX wireless lockit boxes for timecode syncing, Lectrosonics IFBs for client monitoring, a plethora of high quality cabling for multi-camera shoots, and problem solving gizmos for every eventuality.

Reviews

"Dude, this audio you recorded is shockingly good. Even in the train diner and the waterfall mansion. You're unreal." -Julio Quintana - Director, Austin, TX

About

After starting out as a live and recording sound engineer in concert venues and studios up and down the West coast, and traveling on the road with several touring bands during the late 90's, I settled in Austin and started doing audio for the major networks. That soon led to reality shows, documentaries, and indie projects. After that came commercials and features. For the last several decades I have worked on hundreds of projects and only been fired once.

Known for my directness and work ethic (and my humorous sarcastic excellence), I am well educated with a BS in Computer Science and years of technical expertise and world travel behind me. With a personal history of welding fabrication, home remodeling, electronic circuit design and extensive reading on a plethora of subjects, there aren't that many projects I can't bring something constructive to.
