History

My experience with music production goes back to the 1980s when I worked as a DJ and live sound engineer at university.  As a singer/songwriter heavily influenced by acts like U2 and Bruce Cockburn, shortly after graduation the first home studio was built utilizing a Fostex 8 channel multi-track recorder on 1/4” tape.  Several iterations followed, including 12-track analog AKAI MG1214 (designed by Walter Becker of Steely Dan).  Bands were started, demo tapes were made, record deals pursued.  In essence: Sound and Fury amounting to er, vast amounts of life experience!

After moving to California, LOBECANDY was first imagined as an indie record label supported by a 32-track all-digital recording studio in Solana Beach, based on the then-revolutionary Yamaha O2R digital mixing console and ADAT recorders. I closed this facility in the early 2000s continuing on with just a laptop and a collection of guitars.  Later I divested of the guitars as well, focusing on pure creativity including extensive studies in film and television writing, directing and comedy.  I have performed musical comedy shows at many venues in Hollywood while training with some of the world’s best, including The Groundlings, Upright Citizens Brigade and The Second City & iO.

I have more than ten years experience apprenticing and working as a professional  in the film and television industry in Los Angeles and am actively engaged in ongoing training in audio mastering and the vital role of sync in the entertainment business.

I have hands-on experience with almost every aspect of the television business including writing and pitching original television shows; writing, producing, directing, casting and directing original (comedy) web series; and designing bespoke audio/video F/X and compression tools.  I am also well-versed in the business end of the “entertainment business” having previously trained and worked as a junior agent at a boutique firm in West Los Angeles.

In other words, I speak your language.

Currently I work with Apple Logic Pro X and Cubase/Wavelab utilizing modern synthesizers from MOOG (Subsequent 37, Matriarch and extensive Eurorack modular), Roland, Korg and Sequential/Oberheim.
