Production sound for film & broadcast

Metro Detroit, Michigan
Since 2016
I am a production sound mixer and boom operator for film, and A1 and A2 for broadcast.

For two years, I’ve worked on indie shoots, TV production trucks, big-budget movies, and in multi-camera television studios.
I love the challenges that come with delivering quality sound for picture, and I dedicate much of my time to finding new solutions.

You can always reach me by email and call/text. I’m down to chat.
