It has being 25 years so far that I have devoted towards the business of audio, primarily, music production. More than a profession, is a passion. I have being blessed to work doing what I love.

I initiated my journey in the PA field, working in concerts rigging sound equipment and rolling cables at night. Then mixed monitors for bands, and front of house for musical concerts and events. Over the years, this job has taken me to many places around the world, until I came across a great television family that adopted my skills and put them to good use in the box.

Today I keep mixing live concerts. Big and small, FOH or MON, I keep sharing the same adrenalin rush as the audience from that first chord. Yet every day, I have to be on my best game to mix live to air various artists that visit our show, and that keeps me awake.

One day I may be mixing Peppa Pig and another day Coldplay. The list in between is nourished, the most important thing is that they are all serviced with the same level of respect and professionalism.
