About

I've been mastering over fifteen years. I've mastered a ton of projects, big and small, and I really care that YOU are happy with how your final masters sound. I've built a career from referrals and return business. So I am happy when you are happy. I bring my skills to your hard work.

You've come here for mastering, clearly. But I won't bore you with the details on the process. If you have any questions on any of that feel free to reach out to me directly.
