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 a high prodution values.

Reaper, Ableton Live, Focusrite PRO 40 with many VST plug ins.
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.
Emu Vintage keys, 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.


Life Coach Candi Freed recorded her meditations series here in our studio.

In 1994, for the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center I recorded and edited actor Patrick Stewart
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 recorded and edited Spanish narrator Hector Molina for the Spanish version of "To Worlds Beyond".

I also recorded and edited the sound track for the show entitled "The Flying Blue Marble", and many others.
