I am a producer/engineer/mixer/musician/studio owner based in Seattle since 1995. I was also a founding member of Minus the Bear. I left in Jan 2006 to put my focus back on making records. I have produced records for Cursive, Make do and Mend, Caspian, Mastodon, Isis, Minus the Bear, The Sword, Murder City Devils, Botch, The Blood Brothers, and many more.
Want me to produce or mix your record? Email Emily at AAM and cc me as well. I've been doing tons of mixing and welcome any chance to do more of it. I mix almost every record I produce so there is plenty to check out.
Working on Dust Moth's first few songs. This band features members of These Arms Are Snakes, Undertow, Sparkmarker and Eighteen Individual Eyes.
Also did the basic tracking for Black Hills which features members of The Lonely Forest, Minus the Bear and The Quiet Ones. I should be mixing this as well.

I also mixed new albums for Steak no. 8 (Belgium), We're Doomed (Nova Scotia), Curse of the North (Seattle), Zander (Brazil) and Overthrow (Norway).
