I am an artist, mixing and mastering engineer, sound recordist and rock climber from Costa Rica, currently based in Brooklyn. I graduated from the renowned Music Production and Engineering, and Electronic Production and Design programs at Berklee College of Music, where I had the honour of being mentored and trained by some of the industry’s leading names, such as Sean Slade (Radiohead), James Donahue (Boston Symphony), and Jonathan Wyner (iZotope).
Currently, I work mainly as a freelancer, but also in association with Whiskey Lane Productions for clients like the Handel and Haydn Society. I have also collaborated over the last 2 years with Immersive Music Project, with whom I earned credit as Recording Engineer for the Grammy Nominated “Best Contemporary Classical Composition” ‘Rounds’ written by Jessie Montgomery for Awadagin Pratt, A Far Cry and Roomful of Teeth.
In 2019 I created the multi-national electronic rock collective/band known as Garrobo Marsupial, in which I opperate as lead producer and song writer. I have also released some of my experimental compositions under the alias FGN. Currently, I am also a co-producer, engineer and drummer for the Israeli-led alternative-rock project Why Another.
I focus my time working in a wide range of music genres and audio specialties: from recording, producing, mixing and mastering everything in between classical, pop, rock, and electronic music. I am incredibly lucky to be a part of many beautiful productions that reach thousands of people around the world.
I can’t wait to hear about your project, and how I can help your vision achieve its fullest potential!
