Recording Engineer I Producer I Singer Songwriter 

"Some people struggle to find their thing over a lifetime but for me music became 

an instant obsession.


I was an avid listener by the age of 8 and upon discovering the guitar was excelling at it by age 15, in and out of bands through my teens and 20s and finally producing and recording my own and friends music with hand me down equipment until college when my studies became secondary to the HipHop Studio I established out of my dorm room.  


In 2005 I enrolled at the New York Recording Engineers Institute and graduated top of my class solidifying my membership in the Recording Engineers Association where my internships took me into NYC studios with Major Label Artists and Grammy Award Winning Producers. 


Not one to wait around, I opened my first studio in Long Island NY and was off running producing records and projects with local artists and bands. 


In 2015 I married and moved to Fort Myers FL where I established The Star Sound Studio bringing my 25 years of experience to the SW Florida local music scene and like minded  Artists around the globe."
