After 34 years maintaining the IMAX sound system and recording studio at the Reuben H. Fleet Space Theater and Science Center, I built my OWN studio 2 hours from San Diego in a quiet and inspiring location.
I provide studio recording with quality equipment in a low pressure situation that will make you feel at home.
This work is done is at a reasonable rate with high production values. Although the room is small, and can not fit a band, it is perfect for individuals, duos and mixing.

I use Reaper, Ableton Live, Focusrite PRO 40 and many software synthesisers.
I use quality keyboards such as the Hammond XK-2, Arturia 61,
and the Yamaha P-90 for an excellent collection of composition and performance tools.
The Emu Vintage keys and Emu E6400 samplers with their extensive orchestral library add depth to your sonic palette.
The studio includes a large sound effects collection, leslie speaker, several reverbs, Arturia Spark percussion device, theremin, kalimba, rain stick and other methods of vibrating air molecules!

I can put your music on iTunes at a very reasonable cost.

Many artist choose CD Baby for duplication and distribution.
I’ve helped Didjeridu master Mitchell A. Walker sell his music on itunes and CDbaby, as well as the incredible Mark Goffeney.

Life Coach Candi Freed recorded her meditations series here in the studio.
In 1994, for the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center I recorded and edited actor Patrick Stewart for the production entitled “To Worlds Beyond”.
Patrick Stewart is better known as Captain Jean Luc Piccard of the starship Enterprise, and Professor X on the X-Men films.
I also recorded and edited Spanish narrator Hector Molina for the Spanish version of “To Worlds Beyond”.
I was sole audio engineer on many in-house soundtracks for the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center.
