“a polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots become movement… Polka dots are a way to infinity.” Yayoi Kusama.

“I’m currently working with Mirrorball Music, a company owned by Grammy winning mixer Tony Maserati (just mixed the latest Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Jason Mraz albums) and platinum songwriter Stefan Skarbek (Amy Winehouse, Spice Girls, just to name a few). I’m working directly with Mr. Skarbek in his songwriting sessions for Celine Dion, Leona Lewis, Christina Aguilera, among many other artists, with professionals like John Reid (Andrea Bocelli, Tina Turner, Il Divo, Lionel Ritchie, Leona Lewis, etc). I also just finished working as an engineer/mixer on the music for Spike Lee’s new movie due at the Sundance Film Festival (January 23) with artist Judith Hill (Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder’s background vocalist). I’m working currently on her debut album . In case you don’t know her she was Michael Jackson’s background vocalist on the DVD “This Is It”, http://www.judithhillmusic.com/site/)
Just as a little background on me, I’m a graduate of Berklee College of Music with a Dual Major in Music Production and Engineering and Contemporary Writing. I graduated Magna Cum Laude. I was recipient of the McDSP Award from the Music Production and Engineering Department, as well as having a partial scholarship through the World Scholarship Tour and also being recipient of the BAS Scholarship during my whole time at Berklee. During my time at Berklee I was one of a handful of student arrangers working for the YO Team on the Berklee produced shows. I arranged for shows honoring Grammy award winning artists like Juan Luis Guerra, Smokey Robinson, Paco de Lucia, Linda Ronstadt, Gamble and Huff, Kenny Barron and Angelique Kidjo, just to name a few.
I have participated as an engineer on two important albums at the last Latin Grammys, the Ricky Martin album MAS, nominated for Record of the Year with “The Best Thing About Me Is You” and the album “Lenguaje de Amor” by Alex Campos, winner in the Best Christian Album Category. I’ve engineered/mixed/arranged or produced on about 6 independent albums in the past year. I’ve also worked with other Grammy winning professionals like Desmond Child, Claudia Brant and Jorge Drexler, just to name a few.”
