The studio is located in a turn of the century home in Toronto's East end Greektown district. The house is rearranged to suit tracking, and i have designed my mix room / smaller tracking room within the house itself. If you're in to this kind of thing and would like to work with me, you'll find it makes for a relaxed and inspiring work environment.

The studio is built around the usual mix of kit, boxes old and new - but combined with my own equipment upgrades and modifications [some my own design] usually resulting in a lot of distinct and innovative musical ideas!

If it's more preferable to  work somewhere else - please contact me.
