I've had a lifelong passion for sound and music, but my career as a freelance sound recordist began in 1991, when I first met and worked with Pete Talbot, a fine local DP who hired me to mix and spin tape on his trusty Nagra. We shot 16mm film and Betacam SP for cable and network shows, commercials, and a variety of other projects.

In the years since I've also mixed two feature films and had the pleasure to work for National Geographic, The BBC, PBS, The History Channel, Discovery, A&E, Lifetime, Bravo, ESPN,  and a host of other world-class clients.

My philosophy of sound recording is simple.Trust your ears while watching the meters, pay attention to detail, and practice the craft with reliability while being a team player on the crew. I'm fairly well-rounded when it comes to production, and always enjoy helping out with other tasks if I'm not using down time to get wild sound.

I also shoot, edit, and produce a variety of multimedia projects for the University of Montana. In my free time I enjoy the outdoors, good books, meeting interesting people, and travel - especially in Asia.

Let me show you the difference that decades of experience can make - sound can be one less worry on your next project. Although I am based in Montana I am available to work here in the Pacific Northwest, North America, and worldwide.
