You probably Googled my name because you need a sound mixer and someone recommended me.
That’s great. A good sound mixer is hard to come by. Am I right?
Having a good sound mixer on your project can make everybody happier. Seriously! Think about what it’s like to have amicable, helpful people on a crew. People who work well together and value each other’s effort and contribution. Isn't it so nice when that happens?
When you have a crew like that, you have less worry about - less worry equals more happy.
That's why I keep getting call backs.
In addition to location sound mixing I also work as
-a voice over actor
-and edit for both sound and picture.
