One of my fondest memories is sitting with my family listening to old time radio shows like the Jack Benny Program and the Abbott & Costello show. These were the first moments I remember listening to audio only and having my imagination take over. I was captivated, not only by the hilarious material, the intonation and artful pauses these comedians used to broadcast humor over the radio waves, but I was also blown away by the use of sound effects and the talents of the great Mel Blanc.

From that point onward I followed the path of the arts and eventually made it my career. I was active in high school drama and music, but did my professional training at Columbia College Chicago. Furthermore, I honed my craft in the Windy City by working alongside industry professionals for several years. 

In 2012 I left Chicago for Los Angeles and have been working here ever since. Some examples of my sound have been featured with Vice, Netflix and ABC. Many works have been featured in festivals such as SXSW and Slamdance. Other productions have won accolades such as audience awards and short of the week. 

My promise to you is to provide audio of the utmost quality for your project.
