Hey there! My name is Michael and I'm an audio engineer and musician based in the Washington, D.C. area.
I believe that discipline, methodology, and consistency are the keys to a successful career in music.
I started studying music in 2012 and haven't looked back. I play bass guitar, electric guitar, and piano. In addition to teaching music lessons I work as a freelance audio engineer and play bass in alternative pop-rock group Hungry on Monday and experimental jazz trio Agmité.
I got my start in audio working as an intern at a studio in my hometown (M80 Recording Studio) and after a few months began working there as an in-house engineer and producer. Currently, I freelance at various studios in the Washington, D.C. area and work with a wide range of local and mid-atlantic artists.
Arranged for servicing of studio equipment, ran sessions and developed studio upkeep procedures.
Ran sessions as lead engineer, aided in upkeep of studio equipment, and managed studio needs.
Managed studio calendar, assisted in session setup and tear-down, and managed the artist(s) ad their needs.
