owner, sound designer, supervising sound editor

I am the co-founder of Soundelux and now the creative director of Twenty Four Seven Sound. I’ve had the opportunity to work with filmmakers on more than 150 films and been fortunate to receive Academy Award nominations for seven of them (i.e., Django Unchained, Inglourios Basterds, Wanted, Memoirs of a Geisha, Cliffhanger, Born on the Fourth of July and, most recently, The Lone Survivor). I’ve also benefited from rich and long-lasting relationships with many talented filmmakers of our time including Quentin Tarantino, Oliver Stone, Wolfgang Peterson and late, great John Hughes.
Sound has been my life-long passion. I have been making and archiving recordings since I was five. I began my career as a sound editor and, in 1982, I joined Lon Bender in founding Soundelux, one of the first and most prolific independent sound companies in Hollywood. We had based our success on resolving difficult filmmaking challenges by putting first our client's ambitions, artistry and voice.
Although I have been a sound designer and editor for some 30 years, I feel my best days are ahead of me. It is a wonderful feeling to get out of bed every morning knowing that the best work of my career will be done today.
