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

For two years, I have worked in shorts, features, and live sports, trying my best to deliver good sound.
I love working in film and broadcast, and I dedicate much of my time to finding new ways to provide quality sound for picture.

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