My philosophy is that all music should convey a message, express an emotion, or evoke a memory. My recording style focuses on authenticity within hyper-realism. Given the lack of visual cues in recordings, I use my expertise in microphone techniques and recording theory to elevate the auditory journey, crafting an immersive sonic landscape that grounds the music in a tangible moment - be it real or imagined. My goal is to create a vivid, enhanced portrayal that goes beyond mere replication.



The following is a diverse representation of my work and style. Please listen to the recordings over good-quality headphones or speakers (preferably not computer speakers). Some of the songs are long, so feel free to skip around.

Arupo // Agua

I was hired to mix the album Ser by the band Arupo. The music is a fusion between Ecuadorian folkloric and pop music. The song Agua had a lot of instruments and rich textures so I worked on creating atmosphere and depth to give space to all the elements. This song has been named one of the top 25 best world singles of 2023 by the Brooklyn radio station A New Latin World. (Video downloaded from YouTube, audio compression not in original track.)

This free jazz album was recorded in a live studio setting where all musicians played together with no isolation. The goal of the recording was to organize the session so that the musicians felt comfortable and with good sight lines so they could play freely and unimpeded by technology. No editing was done as each take was an improvised one off. The trio consists of Polish pianist Aga Derlak, and Ecuadorian USFQ music faculty Daniel Toledo (bass) and Raul Molina (drums). I am currently mixing this project.

Cecilia String Quartet & Monica Whicher // Ave Maria

Recording Engineer // Editor // Mix Engineer

This recording was made for the television documentary series God's Greatest Hits! episode 3 "Ave Maria." The episode features the Cecilia String Quartet with soprano Monica Whicher performing Schubert's "Ave Maria" and was recorded in the Royal Conservatoy of Toronto's Koerner Hall. In addition to the recording, I edited and mixed this piece for the show. (The audible artifacts are due to the video compression and are not in the original recording.)

I was hired as the recording engineer for Schoenberg's "Pierrot Lunaire" by producer Martha Di Francisco. This piece was recorded at McGill University's MMR scoring stage, so I took the opportunity of not being in a traditional concert hall to create a distinct, almost cinematic atmosphere. In addition to the recording, I also completed the first edit and initial mix of the piece, but because I moved cities, I was not able to do the final album mix. The recording I have presented here is my original mix (not the album version). The album was awarded's "2016 Favorite Classical Vocal Album."

Ingrid Schmithüsen // No. 8 Nacht

Recording Engineer // Editor // Mix Engineer

Runa Jazz fuses Kichwa folkloric music with Afro-Ecuadorian rhythms, funk, and jazz. This album was recorded in the Universidad San Francisco de Quito's recording studios. The band Runa Jazz consists of some of the most distinguished Kichwa musicians in Ecuador and includes USFQ faculty and students. This recording is a continuation of a research project I am heading concerning the Kichwa folkloric instruments of Ecuador.


Runa Jazz // Shunku tushuy

Recording Engineer // Editor // Mix Engineer

I was hired by classical producer Theresa Leonard to record the song cycle "In the Mists" by Janacek as part of Deanna Oye's solo piano album (which is yet to be released). The album was recorded at the Banff Centre's Rolston Concert Hall. My aim with this piece was to capture the fragility and vulnerability of the piano and its shimmering, almost bell-like, high-register, in addition to its rich low register.

I co-produced this National Youth Orchestra of Canada (NYOC) album, and was specifically in charge of the pieces "La Valse" by Ravel and "Don Juan" by Richard Strauss (the latter piece is presented here). The recording took place on the MMR scoring stage at McGill University, Montreal. In addition, I also edited the entire album.

NYOC // Don Juan

Tamya Moran // Tushuy tushuy

Recording Producer // Editor // Mix Engineer

I produced Kichwa singer/songwriter Tamya Moran's sophomore album "Muskupay Muyu," which is a fusion of Ecuadorian folkloric, jazz, and pop music. The principal material for this album was recorded in just two days, with all the musicians playing together live in the studio and only Tamya's vocals isolated. My overall concept for the album was to keep it as organic as possible. "Tushuy tushuy" means "dance, dance," and is an original composition by Tamya based on a Kichwa poem. The song is sung in Kichwa and meant to be hopeful - when you are cold and tired, just dance, dance!

I recorded this tango album with the Zebra string trio at the Banff Centre's Rolston Concert Hall while I was working as the senior sound engineer at the Banff Centre. This album was done alongside a Brahms album which I also recorded. The tango arrangements were composed by the trio's cellist Anssi Karttunen. I also mixed the album.
