I recently moved to Nashville from Indiana. I am a native of Columbus Ohio and a graduate of Ball State University in Muncie Indiana where I received a Bachelors of Music degree in Music Engineering Technology.
Currently I work as an Independent Engineer/Producer and Composer. I also work as an assistant to Producer/Composer Michael Whittaker at Oracle Studios in Franklin Tennessee.
I have been very blessed to pursue music as a career. To date I have worked with such notable artists and musicians as Wynonna Judd, Jennifer Paige, Michael Whittaker, Adam Nitti, Chester Thompson, Tom Hemby, Keith Carlock, Marcus Finnie, the Mike Plume Band, Sean Locke, Andy Davis, the Gabe Dixon Band, Sean McConnell, Justin Rosolino, Matthew Perryman-Jones, Nathan Angelo, Micah Dalton, Row Craven, Bridges and Harbors, and organizations such as the Nashville Strings, the Ball State University Singers, the International Double Reed Society, and the Muncie Symphony Orchestra.
Currently I am working on new music for the Universal Pictures Music Library, several video games, and the 615 Music Library. I am a member of AES, the Grammy Recording Academy, and I am a BMI affiliated composer/songwriter.
Thanks for the nice comments. I can no longer depend on studio work to provide an income. My observation is that folks (clients) now are more interested in editing and manipulating the mediocre rather than recording great music from the start. Therefore, I am reluctant to take on an assistant or intern for that reason. Feel free to stay in touch and I will try to answer any questions that might come up for you.
