I grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina in the small artist community of Celo. Surrounded by musicians and artists in my family and in the community, I have always been interested and involved in music. I played music throughout high school and subsequently attended UNC Asheville to get a degree in recording engineering.
After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelors of Science in Music Technology, I moved on to an internship at The Orange Peel where I quickly got a job there as one of the sound engineers. The 4 years of grinding out live sound production for hundreds of national touring acts gave me the experience I needed to transition into a house engineer role at the newly opened Echo Mountain Recording Studio.
Here at Echo Mountain I have worked with many bands in a variety of roles over the past 10+ years and worked my way up to the role of chief engineer. I love music production and recording music and being involved in the creation of art. It is a part of how I grew up and will always be a part of who I am.
I have experience recording all styles of music from rock and blues, americana and indie-folk, jazz and world, to bluegrass and celtic music. I enjoy working in all styles and it is inspiring to find the common ground between them and the wider perspective that is informed by the variety.
