Welcome to my website.

I've been recording, mixing and producing music professionally, ever since I got my foot in the door of a “real” 24 track studio 1979. In 2007 I started doing lots of great work with Tom Petty. Working with Tom was It was an experience that I will be forever grateful for. He was my friend -a very talented and very cool guy.

On October 2nd 2017, Tom passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, band and close friends. We’re still in shock at this sudden and tragic loss. For now I’d say turn on some your favorite music of his, turn it up and raise a glass!

If you want to get a sense of the guy I knew and loved, check out his interview he gave to Randy Lewis for the Los Angeles Times on September 27th 2017. There is a link to the one hour unedited audio of the interview at the bottom of the article that gives you a sense of who Tom was and what motivated his art. There was so much more he wanted to do!  Also, check out this article in Rolling Stone where Tom is remembered by Chase Simpson and Josh Jové of the Shelters. (The picture in the article was taken on the day The Shelters were signed to Warner Brothers Records)

For now, all we can do is honor Tom’s legacy and celebrate the amazing body of work he left behind that touched so many people.
