It was his love for music that inspired Chris to get into audio engineering. It all started back in 1989 while recording alto sax with the funk-alterna-rock band White Trash & The Badass Brass. Landing a two-record deal with Elektra, White Trash recorded their debut album with producer George Drakoulias, of Black Crowes fame, and engineer and soon-to-be in-demand rock producer, Brendan O’Brien. Soon White Trash was in heavy rotation on MTV's Buzz Bin and playing to sold out crowds, sharing the same stage with bands like Soundgarden, The Ramones, De La Soul, and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones on their U.S. tours.

In 1992, after his rock & roll excursions, Chris settled into a Manhattan groove and his talents became in demand within the commercial music industry. Chris was Head of Production for WAX Music & Sound Design for over a decade, and during his 28 years in the industry Chris has engineered, edited, mixed, produced, sound designed and composed for most of the big ad agencies and production companies in New York.

Client highlights across film, television and advertising include: Nasdaq, A&E Networks, The Bronx Zoo, Six Flags, Busch Gardens, The Jim Henson Company, Mastercard, Nickelodeon, Sea World, The Sundance Channel, and VH1 to name a few; not to mention his personal film favorite, recording one line for a Star Wars movie.

He’s no stranger to digital, having recorded and mixed several podcasts including: Pod Save America, Politically Re-Active with W. Kamau Bell, and UFC Unfiltered with Matt Serra. Chris is a people person. He may be surrounded by gear and using his detail-oriented mixing superpowers all day long, but at the end of the day, he is someone who clients love, producers can depend on, and talent can trust implicitly. He’s the guy you want at the board on your huge project or just your labor of love. He not only cares about the end result but how you are feeling along the way. He’s a guy who works from the heart and gets the job done right.

When he’s not listening intensely to audio Chris is living the dream at home, chilling with his wife and watching his twin boys grow up.
